Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Ultimate Care Maupuia is nestled among the hills of Miramar and we enjoy panoramic views of Evans Bay and Wellington Airport.

One of our biggest attractions at Ultimate Care Maupuia is our homely atmosphere, we are smaller and therefore liken ourselves to being one big happy family. We believe the most important factor for our residents is to assist them to live a full quality life, in a warm, friendly and family-oriented environment, one that respects and celebrates their individuality and life. We celebrate our multicultural environment, and you'll find all of our staff are friendly, warm and thoughtful.

As well as offering the comfort of security and companionship, we have a full activities programme geared to each resident’s needs and a variety of interesting regular outings.

Ultimate Care Maupuia offer the old-fashioned comforts of home with its freshly cooked daily menu choices. We have a hairdresser and podiatrist who visit each month plus a physiotherapist who is on site to look after resident’s needs.

Being on the Mirimar Heights bus route gives residents and visitors ease of transport in and out of town.

"My Mum was under the care of Ultimate Care Maupuia and she received such amazing care and attention. It really was like home away from home. She loved the carergivers who were so good to her. The staff were just so lovely and supportive not only to Mum but myself also. It can be such a difficult time but this was made easier by the wonderful people there. I will always be grateful and have happy memories of such kind, caring people".

"All staff are very friendly and welcoming and the premises are warm and clean. Mum feels safe and well cared for and has transistioned incredibly well".

"The staff are really friendly here. I feel like I'm home here. Many thanks"
