Care Homes New Plymouth
Heritage Lifecare has four Care Homes serving the Taranaki region. Two are in Merrilands, New Plymouth, while the others are in Stratford and Hawera. Each of these offers its own suite of care services; options include assisted living, rest home care, nursing home care, elderly daycare and respite care. More about these services can be found below.
Every resident within our Care Homes receives personalised care, tailored to their specific needs, from trained nurses and carers who have a real empathy with the people they look after. Their dedication is what makes the difference, and what gives our Care Homes their excellent reputation.
Our New Plymouth Retirement Villages located in Merrilands and Stratford have independent living offerings available.
A Care or local Needs Assessment Agency can often arrange external support should you need a little help with household chores. The important thing with external assisted living support is that you’ll still be able to enjoy your freedom. You’ll be able to get out and enjoy New Plymouth as you have always done.
Should you eventually need higher levels of care, we also have Care Home options for you within the New Plymouth area.

Rest home-level care is available at our various Care Homes throughout New Plymouth. These rest homes aim to provide high quality care that meets the needs of those who have been assessed at this level.
Rest home care isn’t just about looking after your everyday health needs. We look at more than that. We think about the friends you have, we think about your family. We want them to feel welcome here when they visit, so that you continue to enjoy company, friendship and many of the other joys of life.
Our New Plymouth rest homes have a great reputation; we think it is because we aim to put our residents first, treating them with respect while making them feel like family.

Often elderly people living at home have someone looking after their everyday care needs. However sometimes carers need a short break. That’s where our New Plymouth Care Homes can help you with our elderly daycare services.
We’ll come and pick you up from your home and bring you to our place for a day that is varied and interesting. There are lots of things to do, including trips and activities, and you’ll enjoy a really nice meal while dining with other residents. Many of our elderly daycare guests say they love meeting and talking to new people; you’ll have plenty of opportunities to do that.
Away from your home, we’ll take good care of you, aiming to make it a memorable day for you. We can also administer medications if required.

Wherever you live, you’re not far from one of our Care Homes offering respite care. Our New Plymouth Care Homes and Villages are found in Merrilands and further out too in places like Stratford and Hawera.
Respite care is available for up to two weeks. It simply depends on your needs. You can come to us for a scheduled stay; or if something crops up, and your normal carer needs some time out, we don’t mind short notice. Either way we’ll make you welcome and ensure you receive the care you need.
We’ll invite you to join in the activities – you may even go on a trip with other residents – and you’ll be part of everything happening.The meals are healthy and really tasty, and we can often manage your medication, if required.
