Duart Care


Our Care offering

Although an expansive location, Duart is conveniently divided into three distinct and well organised sites.


We have a small rest home, which very much caters for intimacy and individual choice.


Our site also offers hospital care across two levels, with stunning panoramic views of Hawkes Bay - each outlook being different from the next, all bathed in sun.


With a focus on personal choice, we build our activities programme with variety in mind.


‘Very pet friendly’ is something we are proud of. Our cats are considered residents, along with birds and fish, and our residents love them all. We happily open our doors to visits from other animals, and even have a pony as a regular visitor!


Activities Programme

Our Activities Coordinators take pride in knowing our residents well and tailoring programmes that suits their tastes.


Men’s Club, keep fit classes, quizzes, baking, reading, topical projects, visiting entertainers and sing-alongs are just a few examples of what’s on offer. We also know how important staying in touch with our residents is through regular one on one time.


What’s Near By

An easy walk or a minute’s drive to the beautiful village of Havelock North, offering a huge variety of eating choices from cafes, to pubs, to restaurants, motels, shops, and a cinema. Everything residents or their visiting families need is close at hand.


For the slightly more adventurous or for some gentle exercise, there are swimming pools, parks and cycle tracks. And it’s just a short drive from the many Hawkes Bay wineries and Te Mata Peak.
