Our Care Offering
Whareama is a warm and welcoming home in the heart of Stoke. With the library and supermarket just across the road, our residents are truly connected to the local community. Other shops and cafes are within easy walking distance.
Our main building is set in a lovely garden area where residents enjoy the tranquil surroundings. Delicious and nutritious home cooked meals are available and there’s an engaging activities programme to make every day interesting.
We recognise that our staff are our greatest asset. They live the Oceania values of Respect, Excellence and Passion and deliver outstanding care to Wharema’s residents. Oceania’s commitment to ongoing training and the opportunity to achieve a certificate level qualification keeps our people engaged and connected to Whareama’s ideals and, most importantly, the residents.
Maaike, our Diversional Therapist, leads the activities team at Whareama. Our programme is full of great choices, including sing-a-longs, pub quizzes and shopping trips. We also have monthly theme days and weekly entertainment.
Our newsletter ‘Connect with Whareama’ keeps everyone up-to-date with what’s happening at Whareama.
