Ngā Hapū Te Kotahitanga o Ngāti Tūwharetoa
Monte Vista Ngāti Tūwharetoa Residential Home and Care Facility was born from “Te Pū Manawa o ngā hapū – The Beating Hearts of Hapū. It was an act of collective hapū exercising their collective show of Manaaki Tāngata for a kaupapa that was based in aroha.
As such, this kaupapa was not primarily driven as a financial investment. It was a conscious social decision by hapū to address the wellbeing of our pakeke (elderly).
After much discussion, the hapū directed that Te Kotahitanga o Ngāti Tūwharetoa follow a process of due diligence and make every effort to purchase the facility, as a Whare Oranga Tangata. 2018 Monte Vista was purchased by Te Kotahitanga o Ngāti Tūwharetoa.
The collective body of 26 hapū are the sole shareholders of Monte Vista Ngāti Tūwharetoa Residential Home and Care Facility.
