Bupa is proud to offer Hospital and Psychogeriatric Dementia care at Parklands in Papanui, in our beautifully refurbished surroundings, complete with lovely, sheltered gardens.

We have a new, 16 bed Psychogeriatric 'Kowhai' Community, open for bookings now. The space is lovely and light filled.

What sets Parklands apart is our determination to put each resident in charge of their own day, so that the care we give fits around their preferences. That's why we say “your day - your way.” We welcome friends and family at any time. In every way we can, we make sure that each day is the best it can be - for everyone.

Our staff are wonderful, kind people, always ready to stop and have a chat. We have Doctors who visit every day during the week, and a Physiotherapist who works with our residents regularly. Our geriatrician visits fortnightly.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Michelle Blackledge, our Care Home Manager, or feel free to drop in at any time. Alternatively, our community liaison coordinator, Sarah Radburnd (027 273 2113), can help you with all and any information about moving into a care home, and about the choice of Bupa care homes in Christchurch.

Testimonials
I write to you to inform how grateful I am for the amazing care that my mother receives at Parklands. She is managed well and her dignity is respected greatly. At her former placement I visited 7 days a week and sometimes at night as I was so concerned about her. Now I visit 2-3 times a week and leave knowing that she is safe. With a husband at home with Parkinsons this has helped me get back some personal time. I find the staff efficient and happy and always ready to listen. Many thanks to all who participate in my mothers ‘end of life’ stage.
