Rest Home Care
When it comes to everyday life, Waterlea makes it easy with Rest Home, Day Programme, Respite and Dementia Care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a nurse call system, WiFi and ensuites.
Light, bright and welcoming, Waterlea is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, just a hop, skip and jump from the Springlands shopping centre where you’ll find all the essentials. A few minutes’ drive from there is the Blenheim town centre.
We offer everything from hairdressing to podiatry, spa treatments, speech therapy, a scooter bay and SKY TV. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, happy hour, gardening, crafts, free sports sweepstakes and indoor bowls. Our Care Home van is also always on hand for outings.
Everyday Heritage Stories
Discover some of our stories from around New Zealand. Our people make us who we are. With everyone’s different backgrounds and stories, they all come together to make the best version of Heritage Lifecare.
I have fun with the Caregivers and we have a lot of chats… It’s great that I’ve got that
What I love about Heritage is the people you meet, the people who live here and the genuinely lovely staff who get to know residents one-on-one.
Levels of care
Rest Home Care
If you or a loved one have a medical condition or are less able to lead an independent life, our Rest Home living offers dedicated 24/7 care from our team of registered nurses and trained carers.
If you’re looking for Dementia Care, our focus is to alleviate any stress and uncertainty from the moment you and your loved one steps in our door.
If you or your loved one would enjoy some company and activities now and again, many of our Rest Homes invite locals who may be considering a Rest Home to come and enjoy our Day Programme.
Heritage Lifecare Respite services provide carers with a much needed short-term break. It is different from our Day Programme service as it allows guests to stay under our care for more than a day and up to a couple of weeks.
Additional Daily Accommodation Charges
We are pleased to be able to offer residents coming into our homes a range of premium room options. The premium room options provide intending residents with choices to suit their individual preferences, e.g. a full en-suite, semi ensuite, larger room or unique view.
A Premium Room Accommodation Charge is a fee that you pay in addition to your Daily Care Fee. The amount of additional charge depends on your rooms features, and this varies based on the premium room features and by Care Home location. Accommodation Premium Room charges range from: $15 to $45*.
