Opunake Cottage Rest Home

Where comfort, care and compassion count


We cannot thank the Staff at the Opunake Cottage Rest Home enough for the care, attention, compassion, dignity and respect shown for our mum during her stay. They are totally sincere, dedicated and professional. She was cared for and loved there so much that the staff began to feel like being part of her family. Her final days there were made to be calm and peaceful. Thank you to everyone who made the toughest time of our lives as comfortable as possible...it will never be forgotten. Our dad is now a resident at the Rest Home and he is been given the same care that mum received. We are sincerely grateful.

Thank you for being such caring, compassionate and relentless caregivers. You gave your immediate focus to our family selflessly providing support to all of us and we cannot speak highly enough for your care of mum, Shirley, and also the rehab for dad, Rex, after his knee surgery including developing his plan of recovery before he could return home. Plus, the Cottage’s ‘open door’ policy and providing a home away from home for dad, welcoming him as part of your family to regularly join in with the activities and enjoy meals with the residents and staff.

The Corkill family are hugely grateful to the staff at the Cottage, for making Aunty May’s, (Mavis Hepworth’s), short stay so welcoming and supportive in her final weeks. She loved being back with her family who could pop in any hour of the day and the compassion, hugs and deeds received from the caring staff made her feel right at home.

The Cottage Rest Home is a lovely wee place. My parents were both there, in a double room, and it was lovely that they could stay together. When Dad died the staff were so loving and caring and took great pains to support Mum as much as possible. She is still there and we are grateful for the quality care that she receives. We are always kept informed of any developments , changes to her care and/or medication and this is much appreciated. Thank you Cottage Rest Home.
