Woburn Care


Our Care Offering

Woburn is a ‘boutique’ rest home and dementia facility with just 33 residents. Our attractive historical building, originally a private hospital, is in the heart of the residential streets of Waipukurau.


Over the years Woburn has been tastefully decorated and many of our rooms have a small sitting area looking out into the beautiful landscape.


Our gardens have won several awards over the years – the roses are magnificent from October through to February/March. Our two resident cats are often also seen drinking from the fishpond (but never trying to catch the fish!).


Residents and families enjoy sitting on the sunny verandah, which has lovely garden views, or strolling around the grounds.


Activities Programme

We have plenty of activities to keep residents occupied if they choose. There are daily exercise sessions, games and quizzes, indoor bowls, and weekly outings to places of interest or shopping. We also have a weekly happy hour with entertainment, like sing-a-longs and visits from local school children, and interdenominational church services. We enjoy organising special events for our residents, such as mid-year Christmas dinner.


Woburn’s special outings are popular. They include things like a trip to a club for lunch, visit to local farms to see animals or just to enjoy morning tea out somewhere. Recently we organized a trip for the men to a local winery where the owner is an ex-All Black who loves showing off his rugby memorabilia.


Our staff also provide plenty of one-on-one attention to those who don’t feel inclined to join in activities. Movies are available to watch on DVDs.

  • "You all have something very special going on at Woburn which tells our family that we are very lucky to have Mum in your care. You all show the ultimate amount of compassion, professionalism, calmness and respect for all the residents and each other. An amazing rest home with an amazing team." - Family of a resident

  • "We cannot thank Woburn enough for the outstanding care, kindness and compassion, always making mum feel like she matters as an individual." - Daughter of a resident

  • "Woburn has been excellent, I feel very fortunate that an opportunity came up for my wife to move in. The news was magical and gave me a piece of mind knowing she she would be here. I am very pleased with the care and the staff. It is a bonus that she is so close to home for me to visit." - Noel - husband of Woburn 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

  • "I would like to pass on our families appreciation to the manager Lyn, registered nurse Brenda and all the other staff that work at the home. Their treatment of my father right up until when he died was very respectful and caring. They allowed him to talk about his fears and reassured him. As a family we were able to spend time with Dad in his last few days and there were a large number of us. The staff never complained and were very sensitive and kind to us. Congratulations on providing a dignified and peaceful end to our 94 year old hero." - Daughter of Resident
