Takanini Care


Our Care Offering

Residents and their families often describe Takanini as "homely", a place where they feel comfortable and cared for. Keeping residents physically and mentally active is important. Our team of three Recreational Therapists has over 25 years of aged care experience. The dementia unit has its own Recreational Therapist to cater for the specific needs of these residents.


Takanini provides three levels of care: rest home, hospital and dementia. If a resident requires a higher level of care, we can provide it without requiring them to move to another facility which can be unsettling.


All of Takanini’s Registered Nurses have experience in specialist units and deliver a very high standard of care that is specific to each resident's needs.


We’re located just off the motorway, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes. 



Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. Or if it’s music you’re in to, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music. We also regularly have entertainers, creating a fun environment where families are encouraged to come along and join in.



Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings...there's a reason why we've won awards for our food! 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 go for second helpings! 


Award-Winning Care

Great care is what we do and we’ve got the paper to prove it. Oceania’s won multiple supreme awards from the New Zealand Aged Care Association, 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 of our residents get a personalised care plan, so from meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered.
