Testimonials
Testimonials
We are very grateful for the nursing care given to our mother especially when she was bedridden. The staff were always friendly and welcoming, they were respectful of families differences and provided us with thoughtful and appropriate support, most importantly they were genuine in their caring, the room was always fresh, musical CDs she loved were played and any changes in condition were communicated effectively. Deb Spence (RN, RM PhD)

Relocating into any new setting can be unsettling and it may take time to adjust. However, with our support and experience in providing Rest Home and Continuing Care services to individuals and their families, this change should become a pleasant and positive experience.

Because of its location, many Aria Park residents continue to live near relatives and friends in a caring environment. Our residents have a community lounge, a large sunny conservatory and extensive outdoor decks on two levels that are used for social get-togethers or private moments with family and friends.

Aria Park is near shops, a movie theatre, Alexander Race Way and community parks. The center of Auckland is just a short bus ride away and the bus stops near the front door.

A village minibus takes residents on special trips to places of interest.

We know you will feel at home in the care of people who really care. Give us a call and come and meet the trained staff that know how to look after you. A tour of our facility and services is available throughout the week or weekend so please call to arrange a convenient time to visit.

Please also feel free to request a copy of our Information Brochure. In it you will find additional information such as: The Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers' Rights, an overview of our services and answers to practical issues such as care of clothing, our policy re residents banking, security etc.
