Support, security and care for every individual at Cascades
Cascades is a timeless yet contemporary architectural landmark in the heart of Hamilton’s central blue ribbon district and is a friendly, caring and safe environment where you can really enjoy life.
Whether you live independently in an Apartment, Serviced Apartment, or in our Rest Home or Hospital, you will be respected as an individual and cared for like family. We offer peace of mind to couples who, with our support, are able to stay together, regardless of the level of care each may require. Above all, we love to share our passion for living well and for enjoying life.
You’ll feel at home with a strong sense of belonging here. You will be instantly drawn to the beauty and quiet enchantment of the lake and surrounding park, where you can enjoy a coffee at the quaint tea rooms beside the lake, or feed the resident ducks. Within a few minutes’ walk, bus or taxi ride, is the heart of Hamilton city. Closer still, there is a Pak ‘n’ Save supermarket, tennis courts, churches, clubs, Waikato Hospital, doctor’s rooms and medical specialists. Public transport services are available from our front gate. If you prefer to leave your vehicle at home, it’ll be safe and secure in the basement car park.
