Taurima Rest Home

Community Health Service


Taurima was opened in January 1992 and was purpose built to provide 24-hour residential care. The rest home is set in secluded, park like grounds where there is seating on a sheltered outdoor forecourt. 

“Taurima” translates to ‘treat with care, tend, entertain, foster, adopt’. We have a caring team of caregivers who are there to help around the clock. Their knowledge of elderly care is extensive and they provide the services that reflect the values of our small, friendly rest home.

We also provide as part of our service respite care and day care, where family carers can take a break, knowing their loved ones are being looked after. Palliative care is also available when required.
