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

Situated at the heart of the Miramar Community is Ultimate Care Maupuia. With stunning views overlooking the Cook Strait and Kaikoura mountain range, this well established, two-level home includes a hospital facility, making it the ideal choice for residents needing rest home or hospital level care. With large sunny rooms, built in vanity units, wardrobes, courtyard access and outdoor entertainment area, the facility offers a welcoming homely environment, the comfort of security, companionship and a wonderful comprehensive activities programme offering day care respite if you would like to join us for the day.

At Ultimate Care Maupuia we enjoy views overlooking the harbour, wonderful gardens and courtyards, and we're in a quiet, friendly residential area.

Ultimate Care Maupuia is unique. We believe the most important factor for our residents is to assist them to live a full quality life, in a warm, homely, 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. We've been a part of the Miramar community for many years now and have established relationships with many local doctors and community groups.

We're also on the Miramar Heights bus route which makes going in and out of town easy for residents and visitors alike.

We promise to offer comfortable, vibrant, home-like facility and deliver the very best in care. Catch up on what we are doing on the 'What's New' at the bottom of the page. Press the arrow in the blue circle on the right hand side of the page to see what we have been up too.

24 September 2018 - My Mum was under the care of Ultimate Care Maupuia for about 14 months as she was no longer able to look after herself. She received such amazing care and attention.
It really was like home away from home. She loved the carers 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 don't wish to name any names as I would probably miss someone out.
I will always be grateful and have happy memories of such kind, caring people.
Regards Linda

Thanks – I did notice how Rose’s spirits lifted when all the nieces, nephews and great nieces arrived – she got such a thrill! I hadn’t told her, as I never know if they will turn up and I’d hate Rose to be disappointed. She was very happy to see me, but really shone when the others arrived – the ones she sees less often. I was just so happy for her.
It’s a reminder how important connection is – it was just fantastic to see. A sense of belonging and a sense of self-worth.
I had the impression she really didn’t want the afternoon to end, but wanted to say also how great her skin is looking – please thank CTL from me for her care.
I truly don’t think Rose’s skin has looked better, and my memory goes back decades. 

25 May 2018 - a BIG thank you for your care
It was great to see Rose today and to see the leg is continuing to heal.
It was wonderful to see her up and about too 
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for your care and attention to Rose in the past few weeks – she is in great hands with you.
If you need anything please just let me know, in appreciation and all the best. Jill

30 March 2017 - Just a quick note to say a very BIG thank you. I think you are amazing.
I popped in to see Rose yesterday and was lucky enough to be with her for the group crossword – so much fun.
I could not believe that Rose was joining in and really engaged. This is the best I have seen her – brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you for all your efforts and energy with Rose and all the residents – you really inspire me and bring life to everyone who lives at Maupuia.
From my heart, thank you.
Best wishes, Jill.

I am writing on behalf of myself and our family, to say thank you and explain how the transition for Sean into residential care at Maupuia Ultimate Care at Miramar.
Has been handled, so very well and we are delighted with how well Sean is doing now, it was not easy to begin with for everyone concerned, but the management and staff have gone out of there way to make Sean comfortable and dealt well with his few difficulties in the beginning and took the best decisions for Seans care.
There is a definite big effort to make the home fell like home for home, for all the residents and take time to answer questions and reassure concerned family members, its hard to after 52years together get used to john having to go into permanent residential care and getting him to accept that, so we are thankful to everyone at Maupuia concern for making that easier for everyone.

kind regards Maureen and Family.

"Where would I be without you? You help, you listen, you understand and give practical advice. No one can stop time and I hope if you ever need help, you will find angels, as I have found here. Thank you, a mere word, but very sincerely meant, to each of you, whatever uniform you wear. God Bless you and the work you do! With love J.W.

Thank you to you all for the wonderful homely atmosphere and genuine caring nature, you have truly made a difference for us all! T.P.

"Thank you all for the wonderful care you gave JM over the last four years. It was amazing as we became part of your family." ---FM and SM

"To all the lovely staff at Maupuia Lifecare. You took such good care of our mother. She had a happy time with you and was comfortable and happy. We very much appreciated all you did for her." ---W and R
