Our dedicated team:

Wharekaka is a not-for-profit organisation and is proud to be community owned and operated. Our range of accommodation options make us suitable for people of all levels of mobility.

We offer independent living arrangements, and also full-care facilities for residents who require assistance with the daily necessities of life.

Our aim is to support our clients to maintain active lifestyles and continue to engage in activities they value and enjoy within our community, thereby maintaining links with their former lives.
