Updated: 1 Dec 2020
24 September 2018 - My Mum was under the care of Ultimate Care Maupuia for about 14 months as she was no longer able to look after herself. She received such amazing care and attention.
It really was like home away from home. She loved the carers who were so good to her. The staff were just so lovely and supportive not only to Mum but myself also.
It can be such a difficult time but this was made easier by the wonderful people there. I don't wish to name any names as I would probably miss someone out.
I will always be grateful and have happy memories of such kind, caring people.
Regards Linda

6 June 2018 - Thank you for making Rose’s birthday on Monday so special.
She loved your gifts – very unexpected – thank you 
Please could you pass on our special thanks to Mere and your lovely kitchen guy there on Monday – they were so helpful for Rose’s afternoon tea.
Thank you again for all you do – very best wishes, from the family).

25 May 2018 - a BIG thank you for your care
It was great to see Rose today and to see the leg is continuing to heal.

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.
