Providing quality care in the Manawatu for more than 20 years, our experienced team is dedicated to meeting each resident’s unique needs and their emotional wellbeing, while maintaining strong links with their families and wider community.
Ideally located just 10 minutes from the heart of Palmerston North, Chiswick Park is set amongst attractive grounds with courtyards and beautiful gardens.
By supporting older people who cannot manage at home, we focus on enabling them to maintain their independence and privacy, in home like surroundings.
Residents are able to enjoy a full activities programme that offers: crafts, daily exercise sessions, singing, bingo, housie, board games and cards. There is also an extensive library onsite catering for everyone’s reading needs.
We have a mini van that’s always on the road taking residents on outings, shopping days and visits to local clubs.
The local shopping centre is only 5 minutes away and includes a pharmacy and library. The main town centre is 10 minutes drive away and offers extensive shopping and eateries, with the convenience of a bus stop at the front gate.
Nearby is the esplanade – a popular place for picnics and duck feeding and the beautiful St Matthews church is just 5 minutes away.

Thank you to all the care givers who stopped for a chat and gave a word of encouragement. Thank you for all the care and support shown towards us and our loved family member while at Chiswick Park.
"Please pass on our thanks to you and your team who have done a marvellous job in caring and settling him in. The professionalism and level of care has been excellent."
"You are all very special people, I saw the dignity and respect you show all the residents including my mum, I head back overseas in the knowledge she is very well cared for."
"I love to be here. The staff are absolutely incredible. I feel so safe and that's the main thing."
"Rettie, thank you, all of your staff have done more than we could have ever achieved alone. 2 years and 5 months after our mum fell down and broke her hip – she has melted with your persistent loving care and got up from her chair. Mum’s psychogeriatricist said she may never get up. You have proved this wrong."
"It occurs to me that 'the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.' To me this means the endless patience, encouragement, support and tireless care your staff give my family cannot be understated."
"The staff I had most contact with were Diane, Lorraine and Mia. They have been just fantastic, but I realise that everyone has contributed to Mum’s overall care. There were mornings when I had to wait for the staff to finish hugging Mum and telling her to have a lovely time when I came to take her out."
"Just want to let you know how happy and grateful our family is, not only for the superb care you’re providing for our Mum but also for the wonderful respect and kindness everyone shows to residents and family members."
"On more than one occasion, the nurses came in to talk to Alan and say goodbye to him for the day, before they left at the end of their shift. They all loved him and cared for him in a most special way, even though Alan was unable to speak very much due to a stroke."
Thank you to the nursing staff who answered our questions and offered help and comfort to Nan.
