Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Aranui Home and Hospital is committed to maintaining for its Residents those qualities which we all look for in the place we call "HOME".

* Love & Support
* Physical Comfort & Security
* Dignity & Independence
* Privacy

We want you to enjoy your time here, and encourage you to talk over any ideas or concerns with our Clinical Manager or General Manager. It is a good idea to arrange a time to meet.

Our staff of registered nurses and qualified caregivers are all dedicated, caring people who have on-going training to meet the particular needs of all residents.

We encourage residents to make their own decisions and to maintain their independence and self-care. Residents are welcome to personalise their rooms with pictures, photographs, their own private television and the mementoes they treasure.

Visitors are welcome. Our preferred visiting hours are between 8 am and 8pm. If a loved one is ill, provision can be made for relatives to sleep over. Family or friends are also welcome to take their loved ones for an outing.
