Middlepark is an attractive and friendly rest home that provides a high standard of care for retired people who need everyday assistance. A special feature of the community is its close proximity to St Thomas of Canterbury College, which has magnificent grounds and trees.

With sunny courtyards and light airy rooms, Middlepark has a warm, relaxed feeling.

Our onsite kitchen is able to provide delicious meals and snacks to cater to everyone’s individual preferences and needs. Meals are served in the dining room or in residents’ rooms, depending on preference. Emphasis is always on tasty menus and family favourites. Refreshments and afternoon tea is served every day complete with home baking. Various special meals are organised through out the year to celebrate events. The weekly happy hour is a much-loved social occasion.
