Green Gables is a small and friendly facility with a long and trusted reputation. With our heritage architecture, beautiful gardens and light and airy rooms, we exude a sense of homeliness and comfort.
We are the most centrally located village in Nelson and after 10 minutes strolling along the beautiful river beside Green Gables, you are in the city centre with its vibrant shops and cafes. Supermarkets are within an easy walk. So too are the beautiful Queens Gardens with the popular Suter Art Gallery, café, movie theatre and just over the road from them, a heated indoor swimming pool.

Susanne has been with Oceania in various management roles for the last six years.
She qualified as RN in 1996 and has worked in aged care for most of her career. At present she is studying towards a MBA. Susanne believes that a care facility can be an extended family.
“One of the misconceptions about aged care is that our residents live isolated lives, away from their loved ones and stuck in a place out of sight for the community. The reality at Wharema is very different. We are proud to engage families and friends in all aspects of our day-to-day life at the facility. Our staff is part of the Whareama family, working with the residents not for them, therefore encouraging independence and dignity at all times.”
