Advocacy and policy

Advocacy and policy for the aged residential care sector

The Aged Care Association is the peak body for New Zealand’s aged residential care sector.

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 approximately 93 percent 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.
