Whangaroa Health Services is a charitable trust that has been providing health and wellness services to our community for over 25 years.
Any support we receive is greatly appreciated and goes a very long way. Thank you in advance for anything you can spare for our kuia & kaumatua.
Whangaroa Health Services was originally set up as an Army Barracks in Kaeo, it was then gifted to the District Health Board and opened as a hospital in 1945. When the hospital closed, there was still a need for health services in the community. Whangaroa Health Services Trust (WHST) was established in 1996 and we have been providing health and wellbeing initiatives ever since.
Today the charity has many facets - Kauri Lodge Rest Home, The Pā Wellness Centre, Te Ara Pae Ora Community Centre, Teaching Gardens, and a rural Wellness Outreach team. We run free programmes and services that support healthy living and resilience in the rohe.
Kauri Lodge is a 25-bed residential care home that offers our whānau a quiet and friendly environment. Nestled in the hills and surrounded by pasture and native bush, residents enjoy a lovely view and easy visiting options for far north families.
At Whangaroa Health Services we have three main focuses:
- Improve access to health services.
- Improve wellness knowledge within the community.
- Improve collaboration with other health and wellness community providers.
If you want to help, but are unable to donate financially, we have other opportunities available. The Aroha Room Op Shop accepts donations, and we always appreciate volunteers!
Whangaroa Health Services is a charitable trust that has been providing health and wellbeing services to our community for over 25 yrs. We are proud to provide a rest home, fitness centre, community garden, holiday programme, and community wellness team.
