Pukeroa Oruawhata stepped in to take over the Rotorua Continuing Care Trust’s (RCCT) development of new facilities for Whare Aroha Care when it struck difficulties in 2016. Pukeroa Lakeside Limited Partnership was established to take on ownership of the Taui Street property and to oversee the completion of the development as originally proposed by the RCCT. This project has been completed and handed over to the RCCT who are leasing the premises from us under normal commercial lease arrangements.
The Board of the RCCT are Simon Collett CA – legal / commercial background, Alexander Wilson – financial background and Rosemary Viskovic – health / project management background.
Whare Aroha Care now trades as ‘The CARE Village’. This facility is based on the renowned Dutch dementia village, De Hogeweyk.
