We are a friendly, caring community and we offer respite care and specialised dementia care to give carers a much-needed break, while at the same time providing residents with care and companionship.

Light, bright and welcoming, Flaxmore is set amongst the leafy suburb of Bishopdale, not far from the Nelson city centre. Our well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens.

We offer everything from hairdressing to speech therapy, physiotherapy, church services and podiatry. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, gardening, crafts, cooking and indoor bowls. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.

An expert opinion:

“You’re right to pursue the value of respite care that is delivered in a measured proactive fashion, rather than in response to crisis. People with dementia deserve to live at home for as long as possible and most wish to do so, and this means supporting their families to cope with the demands of what is often referred to as the 36 hour day. The provision of respite care helps them do this by giving them a reassuring break knowing their relative is being cared for in a safe and supportive setting. However the time to do this is not when the carer is exhausted and on the cusp of crisis, for this is when frustration and resentment is in the air and we’re responding to suffering - not providing timely, appropriate compassionate support.

At Flaxmore Care Home our respite care is planned, flexible and promotes well-being for all before crises are reached and that is how it should be if we are going to help people with dementia live well.”
