Heritage to buy Dunblane rest home, village

Ownership of Dunblane Rest Home and Village is set to change.

A letter to residents says Heritage Lifecare (HL) has entered into an agreement to buy the Rutene Road property from Oceania Healthcare.

This will make Dunblane the third elder care facility owned by Heritage Lifecare in Gisborne. The others are Arohaina Village and Te Wiremu House.

HL executive chairman David Renwick wrote to Dunblane’s residents and family members to inform them of the change of ownership.

“As the new owner we will be working closely with your facility to enable a smooth transition and to continue the high quality of care for you.

“We will be providing the current employees appropriate support during this time of change and are delighted to inform you that we will be offering all employees the opportunity to continue working here. This will ensure you continue to receive the great care and service you are used to.”

Mr Renwick thanks Oceania for the opportunity to acquire the site, highly regarded in the aged care sector.

Dunblane was established in 1954 and provides rest home level care to 26 seniors. It also offers hospital level care and has the largest dementia care unit here.
