We offer palliative care at Palmerston Manor Lifecare. We appreciate the importance of providing both medical and emotional support at what can be a difficult time, and we aim to ensure both the patient and their family are as comfortable as possible.
Heritage Lifecare have three Care Homes in Palmerston North where we provide a wide range of services for geriatric care. We offer homely and comfortable environments with the appropriate care for older people with differing needs.
Rest Home care is provided in Karina Lifecare, Chiswick Park Lifecare and Palmerston Manor Lifecare. Each of our Care homes also offer Day programmes as well as Respite care.
Our popular Day programmes provide a change of scene for an older person, as well as providing a safe, reassuring way for the carer to have a break and attend to their own needs.
Respite care is available for up to two weeks, depending on the needs of the carer or the older person. Having experienced Respite care can also help when there is a need to transition into full-time geriatric care.
Palmerston Manor Lifecare also offers both Hospital and Palliative care.
