An exciting opportunity to join our dedicated team as a Caregiver on a casual basis at Coldstream Lifecare, Ashburton.

We are Heritage

At Heritage Lifecare, we provide residential aged care services and facilities throughout New Zealand to over 2,500 people. As a trusted aged care provider, our successful growth has stemmed from the ability to nurture and grow environments that feel like home - promoting inclusion, interaction and strong community values. Respecting individuals, both residents and staff, is the foundation stone on which Heritage Lifecare has been built. We pride ourselves on creating a better everyday for our residents.

Why work anywhere else

Coldstream Lifecare is a 58-bed rest home and hospital with an 11-unit village, located in the town of Ashburton, which is an exciting place to work, live and raise a family. You can escape the city, whilst only being just over an hour away from Christchurch. It is an attractive lifestyle, with beautiful nearby lakes, ski fields, few traffic woes, affordable housing, and many great amenities - including schools and recreational facilities. Why would you want to work anywhere else?
