Middlepark Care


Our Care Offering

Nestled down a quiet, leafy street, Middlepark is a small, boutique rest home with a warm family feel. From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, at Middlepark you’ll feel right at home. There’s always something happening in our main lounges - find a friend to chat to or join in the day’s events. If it’s peace and quiet you crave, relax in the sunny courtyard, or settle a comfy chair with the cat in one of our many cosy nooks.


At Middlepark, we offer a range of Premium Rooms including Care Suites, which means no matter your needs or budget, there are plenty of options. 


Care Suites are designed to give you more flexibility, plus that little bit of luxury you deserve. Both Rest Home and Hospital care can be provided in your Care Suite, which means you can relax knowing you won’t have the upheaval of moving again if your needs increase. 


Your Care Suite is designed to be your forever home, so you’ll be able to stay in the same familiar place, with your friends around you and the staff who know you best caring for you. You own the right to occupy your Care Suite, so you can personalise it with your favourite furniture and treasured pieces. A DHB assessment is not required for care that is paid for privately. 


All Care Suites have a heat pump and full en-suite, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge and a microwave – perfect for making a cuppa when friends and family come to visit. 


Activities Programme

Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. A scenic drive in the country, shopping trips or ice creams at the beach, there’s an exciting new destination each week. Or if it’s music you’re into, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music and live entertainment every week. Join in the fun with our neighbours from St Thomas’s school, get crafty and creative or keep flexible with games and exercises, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.



Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings… there’s a reason why the dining room is full before dinner! All of the above are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty family favourites you’d make at home. You’ll be sure to want second helpings!


Award-Winning Care

Great care is what we do, and we’ve got the accolades to prove it. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Oceania has won the Supreme Care Award from the NZ Aged Care Association 3 years in a row. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know too. Because everyone is different all of our residents get a personalised care plan where from meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered.

We're ideally located just 2 minutes from Blenheim Road and just 5 minutes from Church Corner, so it's a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes. Riccarton and Hornby malls are also close by, should you need to grab the essentials.
