   About Us   



The Trust, founded in 1950 through the bequest of Auckland pioneer business woman, Mrs Marianne Caughey Smith-Preston, has established an excellent reputation for the delivery of quality individualised care for over 65 years.

Set in 8 acres of park like grounds in Remuera, Auckland, the Marianne Caughey Smith-Preston Trust Board owns and administers a hospital, a rest home and a secure dementia unit.

Soon after the commissioning of the first facility, Upland Home in Upland Road in 1950, the Board saw the need to expand to meet demand for residential accommodation and from that time they have endeavoured to keep abreast with the care needs of their clientele, extending their facilities to offer a variety of accommodation and a wide range of care.

The original 50 bed hospital was opened in 1964, and over the years extended to 112 beds.

Ventnor Home was opened in 1972 for 80 residents. In 1987 the Board responded to the needs of the frailer and more dependant residents in the establishment of intermediate care on the lower floor with the provision of additional nursing, lounge, dining and lift facilities. The unit is now home to a total of 53 clients.

Early in 1996 a six bed secure unit was established in the previous sick bay area in Ventnor Home to provide a special secure environment and meet the needs for clients assessed as requiring Stage III accommodation. This unit was eventually extended to 20 beds.

The central kitchen was opened in 1991 and a new laundry was commissioned in September 1993. Both facilities have been designed and equipped to provide our clients with a high quality service.

There are a total of 7 rental units on site.
