Kenderdine Park is a family owned and operated, private hospital and home for the elderly, located in an extensive garden setting in Papatoetoe, South Auckland. We have been open and certified by the Ministry of Health since 1996.

Residents enjoy a warm, safe environment where individual needs and preferences are provided in a dignified, capable and sensitive manner.

We respect all cultures, religious beliefs and/or holistic preferences and work together to achieve ultimate well-being.

Families and friends are encouraged to join in on activities, contributing fellowship and support.

Most of the staff at Kenderdine Park have been working at the facility for over 10-20 years and treat our residents with integrity and love. All staff actively undertake trainings to ensure a consistently high standard of care across various facets of care.

We observe the Residents Code of Rights and The Health and Disability Sector Standards 2001.

We honour the Treaty of Waitangi and endeavour to make Kenderdine Park a home where you find peace. We encourage you to call or visit to see if Kenderdine Park could be the right place for your loved ones.
