• Iona is a long standing residential care facility which is very much part of the Oamaru community. With large park-like grounds and comfortable communal spaces, Iona provides a spacious setting within a caring environment.

    Iona offers Rest Home, Hospital and Secure Dementia level care for up to 78 residents. All rooms are warm and spacious and residents are welcome to bring some of their own belongings to provide a personal touch. We have beautiful garden areas with seating for residents to relax on a warm day, as well as comfortable communal lounges inside. Our meals are freshly cooked and cater for different dietary requirements. 

    Iona has a wonderful team of staff, including our manager and two unit nurses managers. Our professional clinical and care staff work alongside registered nurses, a physiotherapist, occupational therapist and dietician. We also have a chaplain and activities staff who run a programme six days a week. Common activities include games, visiting groups and van outings.

    Iona is operated by Presbyterian Support Otago’s Enliven service, providing a caring environment where residents are treated with dignity and respect. For more information, please make an enquiry.
