TerraNova, Brittany recently hosted a "Bring a child to the Facility" day. What a huge success. Residents were encouraged to invite their Grandchildren, Great-grandchildren as well as our staff bring their children and Grandchildren. The children got so involved and enjoyed every minute, playing games with the residents. Pop the Balloon, Morning Tea, where all part of the day's activities. Thank you to all the staff who made the event so memorable.
Our residents and families rest assured knowing that our team at Brittany is providing class-leading care. We are proud that Brittany House currently holds 4 year certification from the Ministry of Health, placing it within an elite group of homes independently assessed as providing very high quality of care.
With a long record of serving the residents of the wider region of the Hawkes Bay, Brittany House is an indispensable part of the local community.
Brittany House boasts what we believe are the biggest and best grounds of any free-standing Residential Care facility in New Zealand. Covering an impressive 1.3 hectares, our residents enjoy walking trails, rose gardens, aviaries, as well as uninterrupted views of college playing fields. Situated a mere 1.5 km from town, residents and families don’t have to compromise convenience when choosing Brittany House.
While the numerous buildings cover an exceptionally large scale, some of the have been decommissioned. This makes the building safer for our residents, as our staff concentrates their efforts within a more manageable physical space. This also allows us to focus our works within a space that will provide the maximum benefits for residents.
Our bed rooms are all of an especially large size, and provide plenty of living space for added comfort. The large size of our rooms is unusual in Residential Care homes, and is just another great feature you’ll enjoy at Brittany House. We have flexible accommodation options available, including single, couple, and companion rooms. No matter what your needs, we are confident we will have room that’s perfect for you.
If you’re looking for exceptional care in the Hastings or Hawkes Bay area, in a truly unique setting, then look no further than Brittany House Residential Care.
|"Since being at Brittany House, I have naturally noticed many changes in Mother as I visit her several times a week and we have always had a warm and wonderful relationship and are very close to each other.I never in my wildest dreams thought she could make the adjustment to a Rest Home, so it was surprising to say the least when this happened in a very short space of time.The main reason for this has been Rose and her wonderful, ever expanding Activities Program. Mother very suddenly took on a second lease of life and many parts of her nature began to change.
She has taken a real interest in life in general and genuinely wants to participate in things, where as before she had been rather reclusive and often left things for other people to do for her. She has developed a real sense of independence and of herself. Her attitude now is to take each day as it comes, to try and take something out of everyday and to take the best of opportunities offered to her. She now has acquired this great sense of fun and adventure and will take part in things that before neither of us thought she would do. She has a great zeal for life and learning and takes an extremely active part in things – regardless of the results. She has really amazed me and I give her my total support for whatever she wishes to try and be a part of."
“The decision to live at Brittany Residential Care was made for me - and I am very happy here. I love the gardens and spend a lot of time outside feeding the birds. Brittany Residential Care is clean and tidy. I have security and feel safe at night. We have respectful care staff who take into account what ‘you’ want. I enjoy activities, outings and interesting things to do. Along with peace of mind for the family . They can now have a break from looking after me and worrying about me. I have people to talk to and it is warm and friendly.”

Helping you Throughout the HolidaysOur facilities are available to assist with short term care needs over the Holiday period
If you are going on holiday and are worried about the care needs of your loved one during this time, Brittany House offers short-term care services to assist you. Our short-term residents can expect to enjoy the same great service as any of our other residents, including a full meal service, activities, clinical, and household services.
Because many healthcare staff are on leave during the Holidays (they’re only human, after all!), sometimes there may be some frustration in trying to access healthcare services during this time. If this is the case, then we may also be able to assist.
Not sure if we can help? Give us a call on 0800 00 55 11 and we’ll try our best to assist.
