Rest Home and Hospital

For comprehensive care


The Facility consists of 80 single rooms, all with their own ensuites.

We have two sheltered courtyards to which some rooms have direct access. The Facility is currently undergoing a comprehensive repair and refurbishment programe after the Christchurch earthquakes. These repairs are being staged to minimise disruption, and our residents are loving the “new look” of the Facility as each stage is completed.

Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with mementos like a favourite chair, pieces of furniture, pictures, photos and ornaments so they can feel as ‘at home’ as possible. We support residents to enjoy George Manning Lifecare as they would their own home.

As we understand the importance of residents’ connections with the community, we have an open door policy with regards to visiting, allowing friends and family to stop by at any time convenient to them. Residents are welcome to have their husband/wife join them for meals fromt ime to time (a small fee is charged for the meal). Family are encouraged to treat our Facility like their home when visiting their family members, and tea and coffee making facilities are available.
