Make your home at Palmerston Manor Lifecare

When it comes to everyday life, Palmerston Manor makes it easy with rest home, hospital, respite, day and palliative care. The well-appointed rest home rooms all look out onto our colourful gardens or courtyards and come complete with WiFi and a call bell system.

Part of the Manawatu community for thirty years now, Palmerston Manor is set amongst landscaped gardens just a hop, skip and jump from the local shopping centre where you’ll find all the essentials including a pharmacy. Just a few minutes from there and you’re in the heart of Palmerston North.

We offer everything from physiotherapy to podiatry, a scooter bay, hairdressing and health checks. We have a range of activities including
gardening, movie nights, arts and crafts, church services and social gatherings. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.

But don’t just take our word for it, see what our resident Rob has to say...

As facilities manager for Fonterra, Rob spent a lot of time in planes so it made sense that he’d learn to fly one himself. He even tried flying a helicopter but “there was way too much coordination involved.”

After being in and out of hospital with heart problems and needing round the clock care, Rob chose Palmerston Manor because “everything is good here. They go out of their way to help you and the surrounds are lovely. I sit in the gardens and I’m looking forward to doing it in winter, my favourite season.”

With the family home nearby, Rob says it’s the people here who make it feel local. “Mentally I’m more stimulated and I’ve made friends with staff and residents that I can chat to, I never get bored.”

According to Rob you certainly can’t fault the food either. “My daughter came to visit from Brisbane and had lunch with me, she thought the servings were very generous, nutritious as well. It’s the sort of food I’d have when I was at home.”

So what does a better everyday mean to Rob? “It means the staff encourage you to improve your lot in life and mine has certainly improved. I feel valued and respected and I know I’m looked after.”
