Trevor & Doreen Beer saw an opportunity in the old unused Putaruru Maternity hospital and after a full refurbishment Cardrona Rest Home opened their doors in 1991. Since then they have worked enthusiastically on the business and created a cosy home like environment. Building on this they went on to purchase a second facility when Kenwyn came on the market in 2009. They have built a wealth of knowledge and understanding in their 20+ years in the business and continue to keep their hand in on the overall operations.
Keeping the business in the family, their daughter Debbie has now moved into manage the day to day operations as General Manager in close collaboration with Katherine McLeod, Clinical Operations Manager. Together, they work closely to fufil the business philosophy of making our homes a home away from home for you and your loved ones.
Both homes have big teams who are the heart of the home. All staff are trained to maintain hig standards of care and specialist skills to enable us to manage the wide range of residents in our care. We love to have a laugh and this creates a comfortable and friendly environment for everyone.
