Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Middlepark is a small Care Centre with a big heart. Nestled down a quiet, leafy street in Upper Riccarton, offering a range of standard and premium rooms, including Care Suites.

Middlepark is ideally located just two minutes from Blenheim Road and just five minutes from Church Corner, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes. Riccarton and Hornby Malls are also close by, should you need to grab the essentials.

Middlepark is known for its homely feel, created by a warm, friendly team who go out of their way to provide personalised care and make residents feel like part of the family.

Your room is your own private space, so you can decorate it with your favourite pictures and ornaments. Standard rooms are large enough for a single bed, a chair and a wardrobe or chest of drawers. The cost of a standard room is included in the Care Services Fee set by the DHB. Premium rooms have additional features such as more space, an ensuite bathroom or outdoor access, but you’ll need to pay an extra amount per day to cover the cost of these premium features.

Care Suites provide both Rest Home and Hospital level care, which means you can relax knowing you won’t have the upheaval of moving again if your needs increase. All Care Suites have a heat pump and full ensuite, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge and a kettle – perfect for making a cuppa when friends and family come to visit. You own the right to occupy your Care Suite, so you can personalise it with your favourite furniture and treasured pieces. A DHB assessment is not required for care that is paid for privately.

Testimonials
Testimonials
Mum is loving it at Middlepark. We are very impressed at how easy the process has been. We had visited another facility which we found disappointing and it made us feel as if we had no idea what we were getting into, but we found Middlepark was welcoming as soon as you stepped through the door and had a very homely feel. Mum is getting involved in the activities and enjoying the food. Staff are very caring and have great communication. Middlepark is clean and tidy and this has taken away the stress we felt when mum was living alone. We think that Middlepark is a great place and we are more than happy.

– Middlepark resident's son, May 2021.
