The Manawatū-Wanganui region is home to a range of residential care providers. You’ll find rest homes in Wanganui town and Palmerston North, as well as throughout the more rural areas of the region, like Fielding and Horowhenua.
For those who are eligible, the New Zealand government offers a residential care subsidy. This helps to cover rest home costs, and the amount will depend on your income and assets.
There are several factors which determine whether you are eligible for the subsidy, including whether you have completed a needs assessment. This assessment confirms whether you require permanent residential care.
For a high-level overview of the financial support available, read our article on how the residential care subsidy works in New Zealand.
