What's New
What's New

Cook Street is now under new ownership.  We are proud to say we are the new owners of this lovely facility, with a well established reputation for excellent care.  We are unique, in that, this is the only locally owned and operated stand alone, aged care facility in Palmerston North.  I am an experienced Registered Nurse and Manager with nearly 30 years nursing experience.  My partner Wayne has a background in owning his own business and being very versatile as a 'jack of all trades'.  Together we plan on ensuring if you or your loved one needs care we will tailor that care to your individual needs and work with you as a family. I am passionate about the care of older adults and the importance of an open and honest palliative approach to care.  

We look forward to meeting you, even if it is not for admission here, but for help navigating the residential care world.  Anna Blackwell and Wayne Porter
