Lady Allum Care

 

Our Care Offering

Known for its popular shops, cafés and beaches, Milford also has a great reputation for care - delivered in the heart of the Shore at Lady Allum. A treasure of the local community, Lady Allum is a place where residents and their families can feel at home, and rely on staff for a kind and thoughtful approach. Whether you enjoy socialising or quiet time, how you spend your day is up to you.  Find a friend and join in the day’s events in the main lounges or relax in one of our many cosy nooks.


We don’t have visiting hours at Lady Allum because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. Just like at home, friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and catch up. We’re minutes from the motorway so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes.

 

Activities

Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. Hot chips on the on the beach, or off to the Winter Gardens at the Domain, there’s an exciting destination each week. If you fancy a trip without going far, try our award winning virtual reality experience where you can be transported around the world in the comfort of your favourite chair. Or if it’s music you’re in to, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music. Furry friends, Spring Flings, visits from Plunket babies and theme days, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.

 

Food

Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings… there’s a reason why the dining room is full before dinner! All of the above are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty family favourites you’d make at home. You’ll be sure to be up for second helpings!

 

Award Winning Care

Great care is what we do and we’ve got the accolades to prove it. Oceania’s won the supreme award from the New Zealand Aged Care Association 3 years in a row, so you can be sure you’re in good hands. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know too. Because everyone is different all our residents get a personalised care plan. From meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered. We’ve also got a choice from standard rooms to Care Suites, which means no matter your needs or budget there are plenty of options.

 

What's near by

Milford Centre and Shore City are just a short drive away, so you’re spoilt for choice with a range of cafes and shops to enjoy. Many of Auckland’s most popular beaches are within the neighbourhood, perfect for a stroll along the beach or an ice cream. If you’re looking for something even closer, the local garden centre is within walking distance and is a favourite with the residents.
