Description
Located in Palmerston North, Ultimate Care Aroha is a well established and respected rest home and hospital which includes specialist dementia care. Our staff has a commitment to providing the best possible healthcare services to residents and families.

Set in a picturesque setting, the facility has a beautiful outdoor courtyard, complete with an aviary. With several spacious bedrooms in the dementia and hospital level areas, there’s certainly space for residents to add their own personal touch.

Our home is just minutes from Palmerston North’s wide variety of shops and amenities. Our Facility Manager comments, "There’s a wonderful relaxed atmosphere at Ultimate Care Aroha. We provide personal care plans, a varied activities programme, security and companionship. There’s a real sense of community here.

Our 24-hour emergency support gives our residents and their families peace of mind. Moreover, the continuum of care we offer minimises the need for residents to change their ‘home’ as their health needs change."
