Riverside Care Home

Set back from the road, Riverside has a lovely rural outlook with spectacular views over the Waiwhakaiho River. We get the best of both worlds though, with Merrilands Shopping Centre just a short stroll away.

We have a tasty, home-cooked menu that’s enjoyed by all our residents. Barbeques and Sunday roasts are a couple of our specialities that your family are always very welcome to join us for.

Features of Riverside:

• Friendly to make you feel at home.

• 24 hour assistance.

• Outdoor spaces to enjoy while you relax.

• Space for some quiet time.

• Communal dining room.

We offer a range of different activities and regular outings to local places like Pukekura Park for a walk, or out to Ngamotu Beach for an ice cream. You can get involved as much or as little as you like and we encourage you to spend your day just the way you like. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.

Successful and high quality care comes from getting to know you personally. Everyone has different preferences and needs, which is why our care is individually suited to meet yours. We always make sure we talk with both you and your family when it comes to making decisions about your care so that your wishes are always respected.

You can arrange a time to visit us by contacting our Care Home Manager, Jenna Polkinghorne on (06) 758 1996 or after hours on 027 290 1147 and you're always welcome to drop in and see us during business hours for a chat.
