  • "We are delighted with the standard of care that my sister is receiving there!" - Sister of Resident

  • Thank you. On behalf of myself my whanau and my extended whanau, thank you so very much Te Mana. From the first moment that I entered your facility seeking “higher” hospital care for my beautiful mum who suffered with dementia and who also bravely and silently bore the pain of advanced breast cancer, I was immediately impressed with your warm hearted welcome. -

  • You all set about making my mum’s time there as comfortable and as pain free as possible. Your positive comments on mum’s smile and gentle manner meant a lot to us. Always asking if there was more you could do for mum or the whanau to make things easier but, we would have to say “no” because you were already exceeding our expectations. -

  • We will treasure this time that we shared with love and gratitude. Arohanui - Daughter of Te Mana resident

  • "Please pass on our thanks to you and your team who have done a marvellous job in caring and settling dad in. The professionalism and level of care has been excellent." - Daughter of Oceania resident

  • "You are all very special people, I saw the dignity and respect you show all the residents including my mum, I head back overseas in the knowledge she is very well cared for." - Daughter of Oceania resident

  • "I love to be here. The staff are absolutely incredible. I feel so safe and that's the main thing." - Dorothy Girven, Oceania Resident

  • "Rettie, thank you, all of your staff have done more than we could have ever achieved alone. 2 years and 5 months after our mum fell down and broke her hip – she has melted with your persistent loving care and got up from her chair. Mum’s psychogeriatricist said she may never get up. You have proved this wrong." - Family member of Oceania resident

  • "It occurs to me that 'the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.' To me this means the endless patience, encouragement, support and tireless care your staff give my family cannot be understated." - 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

  • "Just want to let you know how happy and grateful our family is, not only for the superb care you’re providing for our Mum but also for the wonderful respect and kindness everyone shows to residents and family members." - Family 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
