We believe the elderly resident who shares our Home is an individual, worthy of the best care our staff can provide. We encourage our Residents' family, friends and members of our community to share the happiness and well-being of the Residents and with respect to their capabilities, let them be themselves, within a safe, secure and happy environment.

Special Features
Special Features
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 with local people maintains 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.

Management and the RN are available to help the resident and their family/whanau come to terms with the changes required when entering Rest Home care. The well-being , both emotionally and physically, of the resident's family/whanau is important to us. 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, and are invited to have input into care plans.


In 1970 Marinoto was purchased from the Taranaki Hospital Board by the Inglewood Welfare Society Incorporated. The Society is controlled by a voluntary Executive Committee of six members. The Inglewood Welfare Society is a non-profit making organisation. All money received is returned to maintaining Marinoto as a quality home.
