Personal details

Brightwater Home is relaxed, friendly and full of life.

Your place. Your space.

When people move to Brightwater Home they often ask us what they can bring or if they can continue with their usual routines. Our answer is simple: this is your home – you are invited to make it your own.

For example, you can get involved in the running of the home, you can come to breakfast in your dressing gown and you can set your room up just how you like it.

Many residents bring items such as photographs, artwork, ornaments, bed covers and even favourite pieces of furniture so they can set up their rooms just the way they like it. Some residents even move in with their pets.

A full range of positive ageing services

With Enliven, as your needs change, so too can the support we provide. Brightwater Home and Village in Palmerston North offers a full range of positive ageing services.

Brightwater Home offers rest home, hospital and secure dementia care. We can also  provide short term respite and health recovery care (subject to availability). Brightwater Village, next door to Brightwater Home, provides independent retirement living.

In Manawatu Enliven also operates Palmerston North’s Willard Home and Coombrae Home and Village in Feilding.

Our unique and practical approach to dementia care supports us to interact with residents in a way that keeps them connected to the world around them. It often results in improvement in language, memory, self-esteem and social interactions.

If there comes a time village residents need extra support, they will have priority entry to our Homes when there is availability.
