Village Guide is an online directory and guide to retirement villages and rest homes in New Zealand. We provide comprehensive information about residential care, including resources about fees and how much rooms will cost, levels of care, and accommodation options. We also provide detailed listings about many rest homes throughout the country.
As New Zealand's dedicated rest home guide and directory, Village Guide is a trusted, independent source of information. Using our search tools, you can find and compare rest homes in your location of interest. You can filter rest homes in New Zealand by location, level of care (i.e. rest home care, rest home hospital care, dementia care), size, and more. This will show you all the providers of residential care in your area , as well as the specific services they provide.
Rest homes are designed to support those who can no longer live independently in their own home. If you are the family member of someone who requires residential care, Village Guide will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision with confidence.
All rest homes listed here meet national standards. If you require more information about residential care in New Zealand, including about person-centred care or what you should be looking for in a rest home, you'll find guides, checklists, articles and more in our Resource Centre.
First, choose your location and the levels of care you're looking for. You'll be presented with a range of options that fit your criteria. Click on any care home option to learn more. You can directly enquire about availability by clicking the "Check Availability" button. If you want to compare two or more rest homes, click "Add to compare" and you'll be able to quickly view and compare options in your account. You can also access the contact details (email and phone number) of any rest home through its profile page. You can contact a rest home through Village Guide to see if they have current or up-coming room availability or to arrange to visit in person for a tour.
