A haven of kindness and caring

  • Personalised care Rest home & hospital-level
  • Specialised care Dementia

If you love parks and birdsong, St Allisa will win you over with beautiful trees, pretty water features and old English styling.

Well positioned for sunshine, our community specialises in full time care that makes people feel treasured and listened to. Our gardens and courtyards make you forget that you’re in the heart of Christchurch. St Allisa is an Arvida Living Well Community offering person-centred care for those who need rest home, hospital and dementia support, so our residents can stay in familiar surroundings for longer should their care needs change. All our staff are trained to deliver high-level aged care. Our Waimarie staff have specialist dementia training and attend the ‘Walking in Another’s Shoes’ dementia care program.

Our positive, collaborative community spirit helps residents to feel happy and safe

At St Allisa we love to embrace the skills and special interests of our residents, especially when it comes to planning activities and trips, choosing menus, making changes to the indoor and outdoor environments, and interviewing staff. We also link in with local schools and church communities to bring extra entertainment to our residents.

St Allisa is easily accessible when travelling from the south. It’s close to Bush Inn Shopping Centre, supermarkets and the library. There’s also a sheltered bus stop right outside the gates to help you get around the city.
