Description
Our rooms at Erin Park in South Auckland have no additional accommodation charges. This means there will be no accommodation cost for you or for your family if you:
• are fully subsidised for aged residential care
• pay us part of your pension as required by MSD

Understanding what you and your family needs is paramount, because that’s the individualised care we want to provide. We know that this means different things for different people, so we take care to involve family, and make decisions together.

We often receive compliments from our residents and their families about the kindness of our staff, and the “little extras” that they so willingly do. Our residents often say that they love the friendly environment and they feel very much at home here.

We make sure we get to know each of our residents well, so that we can give care in the way they like. Understanding what has been important in their lives, as well as their particular likes and dislikes, and preferences helps us give care in the way that is best for them.

Focusing on making each day the best it can be for your loved one is what’s most important to us.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Glory-May Recierdo, our Care Home Manager, or feel free to drop in at any time.
