Forget-Me-Not Adult Day Centre in Whangarei

The Centre is a day care service and available to adults of all ages. Clients have an age range from 25-94 years including those who are young with disabilities, the elderly and frail, those with memory loss, Head injuries and/ or other disabilities.

The Centre provides quality day care that enhances the welfare not only of the clients but also of the carers and families who look after their loved ones at home on a 24 hour a day basis. The centre has capacity for 40 client visits per day. Staff is qualified, experienced and caring. The staff- client ratio is purposely set at 1:5 for maximum input. Statistics show that the Centre had 9200 client visits in 2013. This shows the community need for the service.

We are happy to introduce our extended client care service. If you need time to attend appointments, meetings etc or just need a few hours off, we can provide day care, for all day, part of the day or just one hour, depending on your needs. We will provide a safe caring environment for your loved one so that you do not have to worry about anything. Morning tea and a meal can be provided if desired.

Frozen Meals

At Forget Me Not we have identified a need for supply of meals that are easily heated at home, at an affordable cost. 

These delicious meals are not restricted to clients only, but are available for any of the elderly and disabled people in our local community who can no longer cook roast meals themselves at home. 

The meals are cooked in our WDC certified kitchen by our chefs and are freshly frozen.
