Description
Welcome to Ultimate Care Manurewa where caring is what we do best. Manurewa was once an Auckland homestead before being converted to the welcoming rest home and hospital in which we care for the elders of our community today. Ultimate Care Manurewa's grounds feature landscaped garden boxes, water features and hanging baskets with a varied and colourful array of seasonal flowers. Our large conservatory captures the all-day sun. Every room has a window seat and is bright and sunny.

We provide a variety of excellent meals every day of the year and we’re only 500 metres down the road from the Manukau Supa Clinic, with Westfield Manukau close by.

Facility Manager Phyllis Trelease joined us recently and is building on the excellent work of our former facility manager to ensure the Ultimate Care Manurewa community continues to grow. We have really lovely people here, both staff and residents. Everyone is made to feel welcome and at home.
