At Southanjer we strive to provide the most home-like environment possible for all of our residents. All residents are treated as the individuals that they are, and we always treat everybody with respect and dignity.

Southanjer is the only facility in Oamaru that offers secure, solely dementia level care and believe that ongoing education for our staff is extremely important in helping to provide our residents with the best care possible.

Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and things to make their rooms as homely as possible.

For more information, vacancies and so on, please check out our listing on the Eldernet website, however you are welcome to contact us at anytime if you have questions. We will be happy to help!
