Special Features
Special Features
Ultimate Care Manurewa is a Rest Home & Hospital owned by the Ultimate Care Group, a company with excellent reputation for providing quality care to all consumers. This is highlighted and reflected in our occupancy rate and the unusually high percentage of residents who transferred here from other rest homes.

Ultimate Care Manurewa sits on a spacious half acre site landscaped with garden boxes, pot plant containers and hanging baskets containing a varied and colourful array of flowers. Gardening ideas and suggestions are sought from residents and incorporated in the choice of flowers and presentation of the gardens.

Willing residents play a key role in the weeding, pruning, planting and watering of the gardens as well as assisting staff with key tasks such as collecting the mail, serving morning/afternoon tea/ supper, running games, etc.
