Nau mai haere mai ki Heritage Lifecare | Welcome to Heritage Lifecare

Heritage Lifecare is a trusted aged care provider to over 2,500 people, providing residential aged care services and care homes throughout New Zealand. We are driven to nurture and grow environments that feel like home by promoting inclusion, interaction, and strong community values.

Christchurch is the biggest city on the South Island located on the East coast. Christchurch is situated close to the mountains, is very cycle friendly (the city is flat!) and close to the sea. Christchurch offers affordable housing and a range of activites for the whole family, including Adventure Park, the Margret Mahy playground, enough coffee shops and cafes to keep everyone happy and punting on the Avon.

Christchurch is a great base for sightseeing on the South, with beautiful cities like Dunedin, Kaikura and Blenheim just a few hours drive away. If you prefer to relax on the train, Christchurch is on the main Coastal Pacific train line which runs through the South Island as well as the TranzAlpine Train which connects the East to West Coast and , if you like scenery, is one of the most beautiful journeys you can take.

We recognise the Treaty of Waitangi and its importance to Māori and how it applies to the work at Heritage Lifecare. This includes adhering to the concepts of whanaungatanga, whakapapa and manaakitanga when dealing with people to foster an environment where people can work together with ease and understanding.

Our team is built on the foundation of respecting individuals, both residents and staff. We pride ourselves on creating a ‘Better everyday – everyday’ for our residents.
