Palmerston Manor Rest Home


Our Care Offering

Palmerston Manor is situated on the outskirts of Palmerston North in the suburb of Takaro. The local shopping centre, which is within close walking distance, has a pharmacy, bakery and dairy as well as a fast food outlet. There’s a bus stop at the front gate.


The facility is all on one level, making it easy for residents to enjoy walking around the rose garden and the sheltered courtyard. The courtyard is accessed from the dining room as well as the large lounge, which makes for a delightful indoor-outdoor flow in the summer months and the opportunity for barbecues.


There is a registered nurse on duty 24 hours a day, ensuring a high standard of care to all residents. Residents often choose to retain their family doctor (GP) and this is encouraged, although we are able to access a GP when required.

    Maree has been at Palmerston Manor since 2001 when on a visit to her Grandmother someone offered her a job and she's never left! She says the Manor has such a homely and happy feel which makes it a great place to work. The residents and staff now feel like family, and being a people person Maree loves building friendships with those around her. In her free time she is busy on her lifestyle block seeing to the cows, sheep and her favourite - the chickens. She enjoys gardening and currently spends many a weekend renovating the Villa she lives in.
