Rest Home Care

For those who need a little more assistance with daily living, HBH Senior Living offers a dedicated, 32-bed rest home. Meals, activities and personal care are provided and you can rest assured that a highly trained nurse is in charge at all times.

Care philosophy

Living life to the full, as independently as possible, with support, medical care and pastoral care on hand 24/7.

Living space

Rooms are larger than most (17 metres square with a full ensuite), so there is plenty of space to bring the things you treasure. All rooms have a built-in wardrobe, vanity and storage and are pre-wired for Sky, phone and Internet. And best of all, every room opens onto a deck or patio.
There are also three communal lounges (with Wifi available), as well as a large dining room and activities space.

Level of care

For older people requiring assistance with many of the activities of daily living and some aspects of personal care, as well as those with a degree of dementia or cognitive decline who have not been assessed as needing a dementia unit. We also offer short-term respite care to give family caregivers a break or when an older person needs extra care to recuperate.


A mini bus is available to take you on organised outings. Volunteers help with a range of activities as well as friendship and companionship, and HBH Senior Living is a member of the Eden Alternative, a philosophy of care based on helping older people to have a life of purpose, meaning and variety.


We offer chaplaincy and weekly church services and have an onsite shop, library trolley, weekly Happy Hour and hairdresser, as well as a range of daily activities, regular social functions and celebrations. For those with green fingers, a raised garden is available and animal lovers can enjoy our resident pets. Residents may also be able to bring their own pet (please enquire).

Industry endorsements

Our rest home has been awarded four years certification (the highest level of certification available) from the Ministry of Health. HBH Senior Living is also an accredited Eden Alternative facility, having achieved ten out of ten Eden Principles.

Premium charges

As a non-profit organisation, HBH aims to be as affordable as possible. Our premium fees are some of the lowest in Auckland. A premium is a charge over and above the daily fee set by the Ministry of Health, for services that fall outside of those contracted by the DHB. At the rest home, our premium charges relate to the size of the room and the facilities available.

  • All our rooms in the rest home are premium rooms with a full private en-suite bathroom. 
  • The premium charge ranges from $56 to $67 per day, inclusive of GST.

In every little way, we care.

Yesterday we celebrated Mum’s 90th. She had a wonderful day with friends and family. We have much to thank the wonderful staff at your rest home for. I have been into many rest homes over the years. There is nowhere I have seen that is up to the standard of care that my Mum receives from your amazing staff.

Thanks again,
