Otumarama Care


Our Care Offering

Tucked away down a tree-lined driveway and set amongst stunning gardens, Otumarama is a charming boutique rest home in the centre of Stoke. From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, at Otumarama you’ll feel right at home. There’s always something happening in our main lounge - find a friend to chat to or join in the day’s events. If it’s peace and quiet you crave, relax in the beautiful gardens, or settle in a comfy chair in one of our many cosy nooks.


At Otumarama we offer a choice of both Standard Rooms and Care Suites, which means no matter your needs or budget, there are plenty of options. 


Care Suites are designed to give you more flexibility, plus that little bit of luxury you deserve. Both Rest Home and Hospital care can be provided in your Care Suite, which means you can relax knowing you won’t have the upheaval of moving again if your needs increase. 


All Care Suites have a heat pump and full en-suite, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge and a microwave – perfect for making a cuppa when friends and family come to visit.



Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. Ice cream at Tahunanui Beach or off to the local museum - there’s an exciting new destination each week. Or if it’s music you’re into, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music. Join in the fun with our visitors from Canine Friends or Nayland Primary School, exercise your green thumbs in the garden, or take part in our regular theme days and competitive seated-basketball games. At Otumarama, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.


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 want second helpings!

  • To everyone at Otumarama, thank you all so very much for the kind and respectful way you always dealt with Mum and I.

Mum’s psychogeriatricist said she may never get up. You have proved this wrong." - Family member of Oceania resident

  • "The staff I had most contact with were Diane, Lorraine and Mia. They have been just fantastic, but I realise that everyone has contributed to Mum’s overall care. There were mornings when I had to wait for the staff to finish hugging Mum and telling her to have a lovely time when I came to take her out." - Family members of Oceania resident

  • "On more than one occasion, the nurses came in to talk to Alan and say goodbye to him for the day, before they left at the end of their shift. They all loved him and cared for him in a most special way, even though Alan was unable to speak very much due to a stroke." - Niece of Oceania resident
