Flaxmore Care Home

Nestled in the quiet leafy suburb of Bishopdale, Flaxmore (formerly Naomi Courts), is just a short drive away from local shops and cafes. Our creatively landscaped gardens provide an interesting, peaceful and sunny area for you to sit and relax with your family. We enjoy the informal comings and goings of a typical family home and welcome your friends and family at any time.

Features of Flaxmore:

• Friendly to make you feel at home.

• 24 hour assistance.

• Outdoor spaces to enjoy while you relax.

• Space for some quiet time.

• Communal dining room.

You’re welcome to help tend to the garden if you like, or even to grow your own produce in our large, raised veggie garden. Our cook is known for making wonderful meals, which regularly results in our dining room being filled with residents and their families.

We enjoy getting out and about and have several favourite destinations for outings, including a drive through the familiar streets around Nelson or a trip to the seaside for an ice cream. Other activities include crafts, dancing, sing-a-longs and visits from local entertainers. It’s up to you how involved you want to be because we encourage you to spend your day your way. Activities are happening seven days a week and you can get involved as much or as little as you like - it’s up to you how your spend your day. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.
