St Johns Wood Care


Our Care Offering

St Johns Wood is close to Taupo’s town centre and all local amenities. A five-minute walk on flat footpaths gets you to the shops.


Beautiful Lake Taupo is also right there, so you can walk down or use your mobility scooter to enjoy the view, feed the ducks or experience the many local events held in Taupo.

Our homecare services enable our residents to stay in their own home environment safely and retain their independence for as long as possible. The residents at St Johns Wood are like family - they look out for each other.


Activities Programme

There’s always something happening at St Johns Wood. We have fish & chip evenings, happy hours, our own special Ballantynes Fashion Show, a midwinter ball and dinner, Flex and Stretch classes, bingo, guest speakers and shopping trips.


What’s Near By

Everything you need is close by, including doctors surgery, chemists, post office, banks, movie theatre, supermarket, library, cafés and restaurants. We’re also handy to the Cosmopolitan Club, R.S.A, Taupo lake front (only two blocks away) and a number of churches.

  • 'A big factor here is that we are so central. The staff are first class and the atmosphere is excellent.' - Les Winslade, St Johns Wood Resident
