Description
Bupa is proud to offer hospital, respite and palliative care at Maxwell Care Home in Blenheim.

Our staff are wonderful, kind people always ready to stop and have a chat. They get to know our residents well and care for them in a way that is right for them, tailored to their likes and dislikes. The quality of our care is second to none with Registered Nurses on duty 24 hours a day.

The beautiful gardens here are a striking feature both inside and out, as every room opens either onto our peaceful private courtyard garden or onto our lawn gardens, providing restful views all year round. There are also lovely sheltered areas to sit outside. Our residents make their rooms their own, with photos and ornaments.

With our full time Activities Coordinator the range of activities on offer to our residents is growing all the time so there’s something for everyone! Many residents also enjoy getting out and about in the Bupa van.

Friends and family are welcome at any time and can share a meal, a coffee or some of our entertainment – 7 days a week. Some people like to bring their pets to visit to the amusement of our resident cat (Fred)

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone our Care Home Manager Karen Blackburn or feel free to drop in any time.

Testimonials
The Maxwell home mid-winter lunch was a massive success because management and staff, carers and volunteers worked together to make it so. Well done and thank you.


The meal was wonderful both in cooking and presentation and nobody could say they went hungry.

It gives me great pleasure to say that during the time spent at Maxwell my wife was looked after in every way.

I cannot praise the staff enough, I have come to highly respect them for the way they handle themselves and those in their care - thank God for such people where would we be without them.

Thank you so much for everything you have done, its so appreciated.

With thanks for your loving care - we truly appreciated what you have done with such cheerfulness.
