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.

  • "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." - Daughter of Oceania resident

  • "I love to be here. The staff are absolutely incredible. I feel so safe and that's the main thing." - Dorothy Girven, Oceania Resident

  • "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." - Family member of Oceania resident

  • "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." - Family member of Oceania resident

  • "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." - Family members of Oceania resident

  • "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." - Family of Oceania resident

  • "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." - Niece of Oceania resident
