We are a powerful advocate, making sure the aged care sector gets the support it needs to provide excellent care for older New Zealanders.

We represent over 90% of New Zealand’s aged residential care sector. The services our members provide include rest home, hospital, dementia and psychogeriatric care, as well as short-term care.

The more members and support the ACA has, the stronger our collective voice and influence.

  • We lobby government to shape policies and create an environment that helps our members provide outstanding quality care.
  • We provide leadership on issues that impact on the success of our members.
  • We produce valuable research, professional development opportunities, information and publications to help our members make informed business decisions, improve capability and keep them up to date with sector developments and initiatives.
  • We deliver an exciting annual conference, trade exhibition and awards programme, providing members with access to new ideas, information, networking events and a forum to discuss challenges and opportunities.
