Make your home at Maxwell Lifecare

When it comes to everyday life, Maxwell makes it easy with rest home, hospital, day care and respite care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a 24-hour call system, WiFi and ensuites.

Part of the self-proclaimed “sunniest place in New Zealand” in Blenheim, Maxwell is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, just a short drive from the town centre.

We offer everything from hairdressing to appointment transportation. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, happy hour, crafts, and live entertainment. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.
Testimonials
Testimonials
The Maxwell home mid-winter lunch was a massive success because management and staff, carers and volunteers worked together to make it so. Well done and thank you.

The meal was wonderful both in cooking and presentation and nobody could say they went hungry.

It gives me great pleasure to say that during the time spent at Maxwell my wife was looked after in every way.

I cannot praise the staff enough, I have come to highly respect them for the way they handle themselves and those in their care - thank God for such people where would we be without them.

Thank you so much for everything you have done, its so appreciated.

With thanks for your loving care - we truly appreciated what you have done with such cheerfulness.
