Who we are

Ultimate Care Group started in 2007 and over a 3-year period acquired 19 facilities. We are proudly one of New Zealand's largest care providers. All of our facilities are well-established in their local communities and have been operating successfully for many years.

Our vision is to create the very best in specialist residential aged care and independent living. We aim to expand on our exceptional care offering through further acquisitions, operating to exacting high standards, providing additional services to help residents and their families and making sure every resident in our care is treated with kindness and respect.

We understand that making decisions about care for an elderly relative, friend, family member or patient can be a worrying process, but we are here to guide you at every step of the way.
