Friday 16 March 2018 - ‘Saint Patricks Day Celebrations’   

 Maupuia turned green for St Patrick’s day, for one of our residents who can’t be in Ireland for St Patrick’s Day. There’s just nothing like it, the whole world goes green to celebrate.  On March 16, UCG Maupuia thrums with energy and excitement for St Patrick’s Day.   So, we all pinned on our shamrocks, added hats, ties and braces plus green moustaches.   It was rather special when our Irish resident started singing the Irish songs that he remembered. Had has an amazing voice, it just bought Maupuia to a standstill while he sung.  The residents tasted and enjoyed the green icing on the cupcakes and round sponge cake that was green inside, they finished the meal with our green punch, both resident, staff and Day-care enjoyed the excitement of the day.

Tuesday 15 August 2017 - ‘India Independence Day Celebrations’  

Ultimate Care Maupuia went all out in their celebrations for India Independence Day yesterday. The team surprised residents by transforming the lounge in to a Bollywood film set in the morning and wearing sari's for the day. Later on the dining room became an Indian banquet, and in the afternoon the lounge was reset as a cricket oval. Entertainment for the day included Indian dancers, a Bollywood movie, a documentary on India and an afternoon cricket game. A very memorable and fun day for both residents and staff!

Monday 10 July 2017 -Balloon Noodle Antics’  


There are some things we have found at UCG Maupuia that transcend age groups that’s having fun no matter what age you are. We’ve been having resistance from our residents, not wishing to participate in our exercise classes, most residents don’t like to exercise. Today we have managed to change that by introducing ‘Balloon Noodle Antics’.  This has become such a popular game we now play it weekly


This game can be played in so many different settings, with many different ability levels, and it is a good exercise. It can be easily graded to work on multiple skills, such as standing and sitting balance, improved respiratory health, upper extremity strength with overhead reaching and hand eye coordination.


Our residents normally sit in a circle in the lounge, with their different coloured noodles (they picked their colours).  We then add the 3 balloons and we are off.  We started off with a base core of residents, with the music of Tina Turner ‘Simple the Best’ playing in the back ground.  We found that we double in the number of residents participating as they come out to investigate what was going on.  It was great to see how completive the residents are, the smiles and laugher as they missed or hit the balloons and how they watched and congratulated other residents when they managed to hit the balloons. We run it now on the days that we have our fantastic fun loving day program group.  


Balloon Noodle Antics only requires the large 60cm balloons, these are easy to hit, come in bright colours and they bounce, so there are airborne longer.  We have used pool noodles in bright colours cut in half for each team member.

Monday 12 June 2017

Our residents at Ultimate Care Maupuia had a couple of special guests join them on Monday morning to visit the facility and they also help with the group activity, the weekly crossword puzzle.  Annette King, retiring Member of Parliament, chose to stop by the facility who she has visited a number of times throughout her career.  She was joined for the visit by Paul Eagle, Deputy Mayor of Wellington.  They not only help solve the crossword puzzle but gave out the prizes to with winners.  Annette also gave a short but very funny speech about her time in Parliament and introduce her successor Paul Eagle.


April 2017

On our recent outing we took Maupuia resident and our Day-care group to the Hall of Memories.  This is at the base of the National War Memorial Carillon tower, which serves as the commemorative chapel of the National War Memorial

Interior and exterior walls

The interior walls were built in stone from the Mount Somers district near Ashburton. The exterior is clad with concrete slabs cast to resemble blocks of Putaruru stone. Soaring columns give a commanding impression of height and beauty.

Stained-glass windows

The stained-glass windows, which create an attractive effect of colour and light, were designed by Pierre Fourmaintraux, an accomplished exponent of unpainted dalle de verre (thick chunks of glass faceted roughly by hammer and set in concrete). They were made by Whitefriars Glass, one of Britain’s oldest window makers.


Six recesses, or mini-chapels, flank each side of the hall. Each has its own dedicated plaque of remembrance to armed services in which New Zealanders served. The flags of each service hang immediately above.

Also within the recesses are four mounted wall plaques commemorating the conflicts in South Africa, Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The recess commemorating the Second World War Expeditionary Force contains a three-panelled Māori carving known as Tāhiwi. This was presented by Gallipoli veterans in honour of the Māori Pioneer Battalion.

The sanctuary

The focal point of the hall, sculptor Lyndon Smith's statue Mother and Children, stands within the sanctuary. The statue depicts a wartime family giving one another comfort and hope in the absence of loved ones overseas.

The coats of arms of the nine New Zealand provinces flank the walls above the books. The Lamp of the Brotherhood, dedicated to preserving remembrance and unity, is mounted on the back wall. Carved in stone above the sanctuary are doves of peace and verses from Psalm 139 in the Bible. Two large columns flank the steps to the sanctuary, each bearing engravings of members of the Commonwealth who fought in the two world wars, their coats of arms linked by stylised branches to the Tree of the Commonwealth.

Word's from Laurence Binyon's poem‘ For the Fallen’ are set within bronze on the rear wall of the sanctuary.

March 2017

Stuart Clarke is a multi-talented New Zealand based singer songwriter who has been part of the NZ scene for more than a decade. 

His professionalism coupled with his consistent live performances make him one of the most sought after musicians in the country. 

Being blessed with a wonderfully rich bass-baritone voice, often said to be comparable to the late great Johnny Cash, he is an undeniable talent in the music scene. Stuart regularly performs at live music venues and for Weddings and Corporate functions in his home town of Wellington and also in other cities such as Auckland and Queenstown.

We had a very special concert at Maupuia with a very proud father in the audience.  His singing bought the residence alive with his amazing baritone voice.

Daycare attendees and residents visited the Mount Victoria Look today. Rising 196m above the city, this has been on our must-do list for a while but this trip is defiantly weather dependent. From the lookout we were rewarded with stunning panoramic views of Wellington city and harbor, and beyond.

From the top, we enjoyed the views of Tinakori Hill, the Hutt Valley and Eastern Harbour Bays, Matiu/Somes Island and the Miramar Peninsula. Beyond are Baring and Pencarrow Heads and further to the right, Wellington’s Southern suburbs and Mt Mathews, Wellington’s highest point to the East.

With little wind we, settled in on the hillside and relax while watching ferries and cruise ships sail into the harbour and planes fly in and out of the airport.

Great morning was had by all.

Daycare runs on Monday and Friday for more information ring Lindsey on 04 3887186
