Deep in the heart of the Foxton Community is Lonsdale Total Care Centre. We opened over 40 years ago and have since then gone on to provide great care and earn the respect of the people in the Horowhenua area.

We are close to Palmerston North and 20 kms north of Levin.

Lonsdale Total Care Centre is only a short stroll from the centre of town.
We have contracts with the DHB for:
• Under 65 years
• Over 65 years
• Young Person Disabled
• Dementia Care
• Respite Care

We encourage our Rest Home residents to have as much independent living as possible.
We are one of the few sites that have a help yourself buffet style breakfast, with a choice of eggs, porridge, cereals, fruits and toast. Additional home styled meals are prepared & cooked on site with all types of dietary requirements being catered for.
