Rest Home Care
When it comes to everyday life, Resthaven makes it easy with personalised Rest Home, Day Programme, Respite and secure Dementia Care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a nurse call system and WiFi.
Part of the community since 1935 and recently refurbished, Resthaven is set amongst peaceful gardens within Christchurch’s famous four avenues. There are Doctors rooms right over the road and we’re just a hop, skip and jump from North Hagley Park, the Botanic Gardens and central city shopping.
We also offer a range of recreational activities including happy hour, housie, exercise classes, quizzes and social gatherings. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.
Our people make us who we are. With everyone’s different backgrounds and stories, they all come together to make the best version of Heritage Lifecare.
All we need is good staff and to know we’re looked after and we’ve got that here

The people who live here are the heart of the whole place, without them we don’t have our Care Home.
Levels of care
Rest Home Care
If you or a loved one have a medical condition or are less able to lead an independent life, our Rest Home living offers dedicated 24/7 care from our team of registered nurses and trained carers.
If you’re looking for Dementia Care, our focus is to alleviate any stress and uncertainty from the moment you and your loved one steps in our door.
If you or your loved one would enjoy some company and activities now and again, many of our Rest Homes invite locals who may be considering a Rest Home to come and enjoy our Day Programme.
Heritage Lifecare Respite services provide carers with a much needed short-term break. It is different from our Day Programme service as it allows guests to stay under our care for more than a day and up to a couple of weeks.
