The CARE Village was formally known as Whare Aroha CARE. This groundbreaking aged-care concept is governed by the not-for-profit Rotorua Continuing Care Trust.
The CARE Village is a world-leading dementia and aged care community on the shores of Lake Rotorua.
Opening our doors in September 2017, the village has been built to replicate a small-scale New Zealand town and designed to allow people to live in households, creating a foundation of independence, home and community, with professional support and carers close at hand.
Our vision is to create a lifestyle that gives people with dementia as normal a life as possible and provides an opportunity for them to not only exist, but thrive. We believe that familiarity, comfort and a stimulating environment have the greatest impact on overall health, happiness and wellbeing.
