Description
Terrence Kennedy House is our on-site aged care hospital at Greenview Park Village. With a reputation for excellence in our standard of care, we are amongst the best in Auckland. Our team of trained and registered nurses provide residents with 24-hour care and support. Committed to providing our residents with holistic care around the clock, our nurturing and experienced staff are here to support and comfort our residents.

Our focus is to support and preserve our residents’ independence, privacy, and dignity. The nursing staff at Terrence Kennedy House are nurturing and experienced individuals who strive to deliver high quality care at all times.

All our rooms are single occupancy with a private en-suite and have a pleasant view with access to a balcony or garden courtyard. SKY access and individual telephone lines are also available and we encourage our residents to personalise their room as desired for a comfortable, homely and familiar environment.

At Terence Kennedy House we believe that remaining active and mentally stimulated is important to a happy and healthy lifestyle. With this in mind our Activities Co-ordinator organizes a range of stimulating and creative activities for our residents each week. One of the more popular features in our weekly program is our regular van outings to parks, shops or cafes, among a range of other especially planned activities.

Our sunny and spacious dining room provides a relaxing and ambient atmosphere in which to enjoy our high-quality home cooked style meals. These meals are prepared on site by our experienced chef, with a registered dietician who oversees the menu.
