Ropata Lodge

Enjoy all-inclusive assisted living for an affordable weekly rent.

Ropata Lodge Care Community is a purpose-built, assisted living complex for the twilight years, located in a residential area of Lower Hutt, Wellington. 


Residents of the 35 architecturally designed apartments enjoy a full range of services, plus the peace of mind of having 24-hour care support and Hutt Hospital just minutes away. 


The unique difference at Ropata Lodge Care Community is that you rent your apartment, doing away with the cost and worry of ownership. Your rental fee is an all-inclusive cost, which means your capital is yours to use as you wish!


Our small community allows us to provide a level of personal attention that cannot be afforded by the larger rest homes. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our residents fit in and feel at home. Many of them bring treasured furniture and other personal items so they can retain a feeling of familiarity.


Our large-sized rooms provide that extra space for our residents to relax and feel at ease. 


We take pride in our menu options. All meals are home-cooked using fresh local ingredients to ensure they are healthy and nutritious. We know from experience and research that this is one of the biggest concerns from residents. We provide individual menus to meet different dietary and cultural tastes. 


Actively engaged residents are happy residents. We design fun, exciting activities and events to ensure those residents looking for stimulating and enjoyable social pastimes are catered for. Our small size allows us to give attention to individual needs.

When new residents are about to join our community it can be unsettling and that is why we place a big emphasis on personal support during the transitionary period. Like any move in your lifetime, it can cause stress and worry. It takes time to meet new friends. You can rest assured that our understanding, empathy, and experience will ensure the transition will be made as easy as possible. We are there if our residents need us. 

Whether it is our new residents, their spouse, sons, daughters, carers, or friends there is one way to discover if the Ropata Care Community is a good fit for their new home.

That is why we invite you to come and visit us. Take a look. Speak to our existing residents and ask all the questions to satisfy your evaluation when looking for a care community. 

We would love you to come and discover the Ropata difference.

You will be made to feel very welcome and invited to sit with us over a tea or coffee so you can ask all your questions and be satisfied we provide an excellent service.
