It was such a treat for Ron
Thank you once again.
Kind Regards Jo

30 March 2017 - Just a quick note to say a very BIG thank you. I think you are amazing.
I popped in to see Rose yesterday and was lucky enough to be with her for the group crossword – so much fun.
I could not believe that Rose was joining in and really engaged. This is the best I have seen her – brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you for all your efforts and energy with Rose and all the residents – you really inspire me and bring life to everyone who lives at Maupuia.
From my heart, thank you.
Best wishes, Jill.

Friday 16 March 2018 - ‘Saint Patricks Day Celebrations’   

 Maupuia turned green for St Patrick’s day, for one of our residents who can’t be in Ireland for St Patrick’s Day. There’s just nothing like it, the whole world goes green to celebrate.  On March 16, UCG Maupuia thrums with energy and excitement for St Patrick’s Day.   So, we all pinned on our shamrocks, added hats, ties and braces plus green moustaches.   It was rather special when our Irish resident started singing the Irish songs that he remembered. Had has an amazing voice, it just bought Maupuia to a standstill while he sung.  The residents tasted and enjoyed the green icing on the cupcakes and round sponge cake that was green inside, they finished the meal with our green punch, both resident, staff and Day-care enjoyed the excitement of the day. 

We strive to reawaken the fun loving side of our residents


Tuesday 15 August 2017 - ‘India Independence Day Celebrations’  

Ultimate Care Maupuia went all out in their celebrations for India Independence Day yesterday. The team surprised residents by transforming the lounge in to a Bollywood film set in the morning and wearing sari's for the day. Later on the dining room became an Indian banquet, and in the afternoon the lounge was reset as a cricket oval. Entertainment for the day included Indian dancers, a Bollywood movie, a documentary on India and an afternoon cricket game. A very memorable and fun day for both residents and staff!


We strive to reawaken the fun loving side of our residents

Monday 10 July 2017 - Balloon Noodle Antics’  

 There are some things we have found at UCG Maupuia that transcend age groups that’s have fun no matter what age you are. We’ve been having resistance from our residents, not wishing to participate in our exercise classes, most residents don’t like to exercise. Today we have managed to change that by introducing ‘Balloon Noodle Antics’.  This has become such a popular game we now play it weekly


This game can be played in so many different settings, with many different ability levels, and it is a good exercise. It can be easily graded to work on multiple skills, such as standing and sitting balance, improved respiratory health, upper extremity strength with overhead reaching and hand eye coordination.


Our residents normally sit in a circle in the lounge, with their different coloured noodles (they picked their colours).  We then add the 3 balloons and we are off.  We started off with a base core of residents, with the music of Tina Turner ‘Simple the Best’ playing in the back ground.  We found that we double in the number of residents participating as they come out to investigate what was going on.  It was great to see how completive the residents are, the smiles and laugher as they missed or hit the balloons and how they watched and congratulated other residents when they managed to hit the balloons. We run it now on the days that we have our fantastic fun loving day program group.  


Balloon Noodle Antics only requires the large 60cm balloons, these are easy to hit, come in bright colours and they bounce, so there are airborne longer.  We have used pool noodles in bright colours cut in half for each team member.  


We strive to reawaken the fun loving side of our residents

Monday 12 June 2017

Our residents at Ultimate Care Maupuia had a couple of special guests join them on Monday morning to visit the facility and they also help with the group activity, the weekly crossword puzzle.  Annette King, retiring Member of Parliament, chose to stop by the facility who she has visited a number of times throughout her career.  She was joined for the visit by Paul Eagle, Deputy Mayor of Wellington.  They not only help solve the crossword puzzle but gave out the prizes to with winners.  Annette also gave a short but very funny speech about her time in Parliament and introduce her successor Paul Eagle.

Stuart Clarke is a multi-talented New Zealand based singer songwriter who has been part of the NZ scene for more than a decade. 

His professionalism coupled with his consistent live performances make him one of the most sought after musicians in the country. 

Being blessed with a wonderfully rich bass-baritone voice, often said to be comparable to the late great Johnny Cash, he is an undeniable talent in the music scene. Stuart regularly performs at live music venues and for Weddings and Corporate functions in his home town of Wellington and also in other cities such as Auckland and Queenstown.

We had a very special concert at Maupuia with a very proud father in the audience.  His singing bought the residence alive with his amazing baritone voice.

Our Day Care pick up started at 8.30am this morning.  We had our normal team and they were all still chatting and catching up about our Christmas Party last week.  As soon as morning tea was over it was out into the van and off to see the latest Cruise Ship ‘Radiance of the Seas’ It holds 2100 passengers and is operated by 857 international crew members. It is registered in the Bahamas, built in 2001 and refurbished in 2011. She has 12 decks, 237 cabins inside and 813 cabins outside is 962 feet long and is 106 feet wide and travels at an average speed of 24 knots.  It dwarfed the Ultimate Care Van today.  It was back for a late lunch and it will be cross word puzzles for all this afternoon, prizes went to Johnny, Frank, and Rachel last week. 

This is the last Monday daycare session until the New Year

Our popular Friday Daycare service is now full.  We still have places available on Mondays.  We are looking at setting up a Wednesday’s program in the New Year.
