Our clinical expertise is world-class, led by Dr Frances Hughes, our GM Nursing and Clinical Strategy. Frances is a Registered Nurse and has led global organisations including The International Council of Nurses and worked for the World Health Organisation. She was made an Officer of The New Zealand Order of Merit in 2005 and a Companion of The New Zealand Order of Merit in 2020. Her vision for global excellence in aged care is inspiring, as is her passion to deliver it.

If you asked our staff, they would tell a story that’s not often shared. A tale of dedication, knowledge and putting in the mahi, to care for those who once cared for you and me.

Every person in our team lives by the following values:

  • Kindness – show compassion and understanding
  • Passion – believe that we can make a difference
  • Respect – know that everyone matters
  • Excellence – delivering quality in everything we do

What’s different about us

Our boutique offerings ensure that we can provide a very personalised experience for all our residents – both in village and care.

That makes us special and unique.

We provide industry leading learning and development programmes for all our staff and we have a strong focus on career progression for all.

We also have an employee share scheme which is available to all our staff after being employed with us for one year.

Want to walk in their shoes?

To celebrate International Nurses Day, we launched ‘In Their Shoes’ – a celebration of our dedicated and clinically skilled nurses who work at the forefront of New Zealand’s aged care sector.

‘In Their Shoes’ acknowledges not just the kindness and compassion that our nurses bring to every day, but more importantly, their knowledge, commitment and professionalism.

To mark the day, each of our frontline nurses were gifted a pair of bespoke Allbirds, with a specially crafted message in the insoles of what it’s like to walk a day in their shoes – a token of our respect for the work that they do.

But this doesn’t stop with our current nurses. Every nurse who becomes part of our team will be gifted a pair of bespoke Allbirds, with a specially crafted message in the insoles of what it’s like to walk a day in the shoes of an aged care nurse. We’re always looking for dedicated and skilled nurses across New Zealand.
