When it comes to everyday life, Flaxmore makes it easy with Respite and personalised Dementia Care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a nurse call system and WiFi.
Light, bright and welcoming, Flaxmore is set amongst the leafy suburb of Bishopdale, just a hop, skip and jump from the Nelson city centre.
We offer everything from hairdressing to speech therapy, physiotherapy, church services and podiatry. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, gardening, crafts, pet therapy and indoor bowls. Our Care Home van is also always on hand for outings.
Our people make us who we are. With everyone’s different backgrounds and stories, they all come together to make the best version of Heritage Lifecare.
All we need is good staff and to know we’re looked after and we’ve got that here
Betty likes a laugh which is what she does when we ask what 'A Better Everyday' means to her...
The people who live here are the heart of the whole place, without them we don’t have our Care Home.
Levels of care
If you’re looking for Dementia Care, our focus is to alleviate any stress and uncertainty from the moment you and your loved one steps in our door.
Heritage Lifecare Respite services provide carers with a much needed short-term break. It is different from our Day Programme service as it allows guests to stay under our care for more than a day and up to a couple of weeks.
