Description
Bupa is proud to offer hospital, respite, day stay and palliative care at Maxwell Care Home in Blenheim.

Our staff are wonderful, kind people, always ready to stop and have a chat. They get to know our residents well and care for them in a way that is right for them, tailored to their likes and dislikes. The quality of our care is second to none, with Registered Nurses on duty 24 hours a day.

The beautiful gardens here are a striking feature both inside and out, as every room opens onto a lovely private courtyard garden providing restful views all year round and lovely sheltered areas to sit outside. Our residents are able to make their rooms their own with photos and ornaments.

The range of activities on offer to our residents is growing all the time so there’s something for everyone! Many residents also enjoy getting out and about in the Bupa van.

Friends and family are welcome at any time and can share a meal, a coffee or some of our entertainment – 7 days a week. Some people bring their pets to visit to the amusement of our resident cat Fred.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone our Care Home Manager, Karen Taylor or feel free to drop in any time.
