Elms Court on Middlepark has a wide range of activities to suit all. Immediately outside the premises is a bus shelter waiting to take those who are able anywhere in Christchurch. Furthermore, we also have a van for regular weekly outings. There are many options for the more able such as a short, pleasant walk to Upper Riccarton library, the shops or to the local park.

We are located just 2 minutes from Blenheim Road and just 5 minutes from Church Corner, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes. Riccarton and Hornby Malls are also close by, should you need to grab any additional extra comforts.

Mum is loving it at Middlepark. We are very impressed at how easy the process has been. We had visited another facility which we found disappointing and it made us feel as if we had no idea what we were getting into, but we found Middlepark was welcoming as soon as you stepped through the door and had a very homely feel. Mum is getting involved in the activities and enjoying the food. Staff are very caring and have great communication. Middlepark is clean and tidy and this has taken away the stress we felt when mum was living alone. We think that Middlepark is a great place and we are more than happy.

– Middlepark resident's son, May 2021.
