Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Wayne and I purchased this business on the 22nd November 2017. We are very proud to be the owner operators of this small and special home for older adults. We believe we are the only privately owned and operated facility left in Palmerston North. This gives us a unique opportunity to make decisions on the spot and tailor care to individual resident and family needs. We are also able to accommodate respite care or private recuperation dependent on vacancies.
We are very proud to have recently been awarded a four year certification audit recognizing the high quality care we can offer at Cook St.
