Not wanting to building another institution for residents Whare Aroha has been inspired by the de Hogeweyk Dementia Village design in the Netherlands as a care facility. As founders of the NZ interpretation we have created a small town on the shores of Lake Rotorua. 13 individual houses cladded and decorated in seven different NZ lifestyles with a superette to facilitate and support residents to live a normal life, as much as possible, in a way that is recognisable to them. The first in Australasia. visiting our village is an inspiration for changing the way we deliver care, especially for those with dementia.
