Specialist dementia care with a difference

Westella provides specialist dementia care supporting kaumātua (older people) in Feilding.

Taking an innovative approach

The 26-bedroom homestead, secure park-like grounds, wellbeing services and innovative solutions support people to live a full and connected life.

The service challenges the traditional approach to dementia care by balancing safety with the feeling of being at home.

Open spaces, innovative technology solutions and 24-hour continuity of care ensure kaumātua enjoy a sense of freedom and independence.

Everything we do is driven by a desire to give the people we support the security, contentedness, warmth and sense of wellbeing they deserve.

People are at the heart of everything we do

Our caring team at Westella are passionate about making a difference and help people live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. .

Whānau are encouraged to visit and can have peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in caring hands at Westella.

The comforts of home

The Westella homestead has seven and a half acres of secure park-like grounds, supporting our philosophy that Westella should look and feel like home.

Healthy living is encouraged with home-cooked meals and a variety of physical and wellbeing activities on offer.
