Special Features
Relocating into any new setting can be unsettling and may take time to adjust to over time. 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 secure caring environment. The 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 families or friends.

Aria Park is near shops a movie theater, cafe's, restaurant's, 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.
