Our history

In 1989 the vision, enthusiasm and determination of a number of local Kawerau residents led to the establishment of the Mountain View Rest Home. The site was originally a maternity hospital and it is almost ironic that it went on to become a rest home which provides quality care for the elderly. A community owned facility, Mountain View Rest Home and Hospital is a charitable trust. The Trust Board members are volunteers, elected by the community and serve a two year term. As a “not for profit organisation” any profits are reinvested into the home to make improvements that will benefit our residents.

Our goal is to work with the Kawerau Community to provide our senior citizens with the very best of care regardless of their financial means. We offer a caring, friendly and comfortable environment where people feel valued, happy and safe. The Home is proud of its reputation. It works hard on continually building a culture and system which attracts “word of mouth” referrals and fosters close connections with the community.

Our Manager, Jeanette Crook, has been associated with Mountain View since it first opened in 1991. She is a registered nurse with 30 years experience in gerontology so brings a wealth of invaluable experience to the role. Jeanette is supported by her Charge Nurses. Both are experienced registered nurses and lead professional and enthusiastic teams of RN’s, EN’s and caregivers all trained to provide quality care to the elderly.
