Gisborne Specialised Hospitals
In Gisborne, Heritage Lifecare have specialised hospital services providing geriatric, dementia and palliative care options.
Our highly trained registered nurses and carers are able to assist older people with dementia who may present with behaviours that are challenging to whanau. We have a safe and secure environment, set in landscaped gardens, which provides a restful setting for residents.
With palliative care we understand the importance of providing both medical and emotional support. Our goal is to ensure both the patient and their whanau are as comfortable as possible at this time.
Heritage Lifecare’s Dunblane Lifecare & Village, at Inner Kaiti, provides palliative care where we can look after your loved one at all stages through a life-limiting illness. We aim to be mindful of the needs of whanau at this time and want you to feel supported too.
We have a specialised team experienced in palliative care. We understand that the whanau, as well as the patient, need support through what can be a stressful and possibly exhausting time. We care for the patient’s physical and medical needs, aiming to minimise any pain, but we’re also there to support everyone through their emotional, spiritual and mental needs.
Dunblane Lifecare & Village is set in beautifully landscaped gardens which residents and whanau often find to be a welcome refuge and a place for reflection.

Te Wiremu House Lifecare & Village, in Te Hapara, and Dunblane Lifecare & Village, at Inner Kaiti, both have a senior hospital onsite to care for those seniors needing a higher level of care than rest home care.
Our registered nurses are on call around the clock to provide skilled, compassionate, and personal care. Each of our senior hospital residents has a personalised care plan which is prepared by our registered nurses. This plan is reviewed regularly, with input from whanau, to make sure we continue to do everything possible to provide the best of care for each resident.
No matter what level of support is required, at our senior hospitals our goal is for all of our residents to live their very best life, with our care and encouragement. This may be through daily activities or simply being able to enjoy the company of others.
