Description
At Aria Gardens, we provide a friendly, warm, homely environment. We encourage and support individuals within the community to make the most of their abilities and, where possible, increase their confidence to enable them to grow and enjoy as much independence as they can. Our philosophy is to provide every resident with their own space where they can welcome their friends and family/whanau as visitors to their home in private and comfortable surroundings.
Our vision at Aria Gardens is to provide a home where our residents live with dignity, where the environment enhances and maximizes independence and there is respect for every individual's cultural, spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical well being. This vision is underpinned by our values of compassion, integrity, dignity, honesty, respect, innovation, accountability and excellence in our field.
The wellness programmes we offer here at Aria Gardens are based on robust research about the positive effects of diet, exercise, social interaction and mental stimulation on ageing. This approach is part of our ‘living a life with soul’ philosophy, which shapes how our communities operate.
Arvida’s “Five Pillars”, Eating Well, Moving Well, Resting Well, Thinking Well and Engaging Well are reflected in the planning and delivery of each program.
Designed to cater to the specific interests of residents, they can be held within the community or at an outside venue, accessed with the community van.
We are on the North Shore in the Waitamata District and based in Albany.

Bruce said to say thank-you to all the Pohutukawa staff for looking after Bruce. Especially in the difficult time during lockdown.
He really appreciates the work that we do for his cousin.

Great grandson Oscar wrote her a note to say it was nice to visit her in her rest home and listening about what she was doing. He also drew her a picture of the family driving past on Mothers Day and said that he enjoyed it.

Thank you Carol to you and your team for keeping the elderly safe and healthy.
Congratulations and very well done.
