The Manager and Staff, as per policy, are available to help the resident and their family/whanau come to terms with the changes required when entering Rest Home care.


A number of our Residents have lived in the Inglewood area for many years so they have established strong links within the community. Likewise as a community based facility we also have considerable input from local people who frequently visit. This interaction of local people creates a sense of social connectedness.

We support our residents to retain as much independence as possible and to be involved as much as they wish in the day to day activities in the home.

Marinoto is spacious yet homely. Many of the living spaces look like one might expect in a large country home.

The well-being , both emotionally and physically, of the resident's family/whanau, is always of paramount concern to the Staff and Management. We try to make relatives and friends of the Resident as comfortable as we can.

Family may assist in the care of their relative if they wish to.Family are invited to have input into careplans.


In 1970 Marinoto was purchased from the Taranaki Hospital Board by the Inglewood Welfare Society Incorporated. The Society is controlled by an unpaid Executive committee of six. Mr J.B. Valintine was the founder of Marinoto and headed the committee for a good many years. The Inglewood Welfare Society is a non-profit making organisation. All money received returned to maintaining Marinoto as a quality home.
