    Visiting at CHT


    We encourage residents to think of their care home as a place where we friends, whanau and family are welcome to visit every day of the week. We also believe that outings for day visits, or overnight and weekend visits are a wonderful way to enjoy a change of scenery while living in a care home.

    Likewise, our residents are often visited by community groups – cultural, musical or artistic – to ensure a vibrant atmosphere at their care home.
