Ascot House

Ascot House is a 27 bed rest home located in beautiful Devonport and close to all amenities.

This traditional villa style building portrays the grandeur of yesteryear yet is largely purpose-built to offer a range of accommodation options including ensuite bedrooms, single and double bedrooms while situated on half an acre of lovely gardens which overlook the Waitemata Golf Course.

Ascot House is licensed to care for varying degrees of disabilities and abilities while we also offer day programmes for those who are not yet ready to enter full time care.

Pat Dickinson, Registered Nurse


Patricia Dickinson English parents, born in Canada immigrated to NZ age 3, lived in Auckland ever since. Married with 3 daughter and one son—love them dearly.

I came to nursing as an older student, training with my children in school. After working for Auckland Hospital for approximately twelve years, Orthopaedics, Oncology and Older Peoples Health, I went into the private sector working for Private Hospitals and Rest Homes for the last fifteen years — I love working with the residents and families and it has bought me a fulfilled career.


3 year certification from the Ministry of Health

Ascot House is one of an elite group of homes independently assessed as providing a very high quality of care. Our residents and families can rest assured in our ability to provide superb service.

Diversional Therapist and Physiotherapists

We are confident that our residents are getting the best mind, physical and emotional “workout”. We use resources such as the “Fiddle Blanket” which help with tired, arthritic and joint ached hands.

“I had no worries about living at Jervois Residential Care and felt right at home from the first visit. I still feel the same way now. I recommend Jervois Residential Care because it is close to what I like. It has a good standard of care with friendly and listening staff. I have outings, activities and things to do. I have security and feel safe at night. I like the respectful care staff who take into account what ‘you’ want.  I like the home cooked meals and choice of hot main meals. Jervois Residential Care is clean and tidy with no smells. It is warm and friendly.”

“The staff at Jervois Residential Care are like your family and my room feels as cosy as a luxurious penthouse. (I do not feel boxed up as if I am in a hostel.) I recommend Jervois Residential Care because management have an open door policy and they do listen and react to requests. I chose to live here because it is near public transport and shops. Our double room is ideal and our health has been restored to a high level consistent with our respective ages. (84 and 81)”

“The nurses are good to me and we get plenty of entertainment which is a big thing for me. It gives me something to look forward to. I enjoy going out, particularly for meals and entertainment. I’ve made some friends. The house is always clean. I’m happy”
