This facility is owned by Aranui Home & Hospital Limited.
Aranui Home and Hospital is located in Mount Albert in Auckland. Aranui provides a 27 person rest home, and 23 person hospital, with a 24/7 registered nurse. Both Rest Home and Hospital have a call bell system to ensure that residents are able to receive help.
The Aranui website states that â€śAranui prides itself on: Friendly, homely atmosphere, Strong links with the local community, Stimulating environment, varied activity programme.â€ť It goes on to say that: â€śAranui is small enough to care, but big enough to have a we have expertise in four specialist areas, all on one large site, Rest Home, Hospital, Dementia, and Dementia day care.â€ť
According to the website, the dementia unit at Arauni: â€śThis 25-bed state-of-the-art facility was recently built adjoining Aranui Rest Home & Hospital. It has been purpose-built to cater for the specific needs of dementia clients. Research was carried out in the planning stages and the unit has been modelled on successful contemporary dementia facilities in Australia. When you look around you'll see that everything has been carefully considered to create the best possible environment for those with dementia.â€ť
All rest homes and aged residential care facilities are certified and audited to ensure they:
provide safe, appropriate care for their residents
meet the standards set out in the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001.
Types of audit and when they happen
Certification / Surveillance Audits Certification audits happen every 1â€“4 years. After the audit, rest homes are certified for a set period of time (the exact length depends on how well the rest home performed at the certification audit). Once this time is up, the rest home must be re-audited and its certification renewed.
An unannounced spot audit (also called a surveillance audit) happens around the middle of a rest homeâ€™s certification period. The spot audit ensures progress has been made on outstanding areas identified in the earlier certification audit and that standards havenâ€™t slipped.
In addition to audits, rest homes have to report to their DHB on how they are addressing issues found at audit. These improvements are then verified at the next audit event.
Other types of audit
Provisional audits happen when a provider purchases a certified rest home from another provider.
Partial provisional audits happen when a provider wants to add services to their certificate (eg, a rest home adding hospital-level care), when a new rest home is built, or when a provider adds capacity or reconfigures their services (eg, builds a new wing, upgrades rooms). Before 2014, audits for adding capacity or reconfiguring services were referred to as verification audits.
Rest homes may have unannounced inspections by the Ministry under the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001 in the event of a serious complaint.
DHB issues-based audits
DHBs can conduct issues-based audits under the Aged Related Residential Care Contract. For information on these audits please contact the relevant DHB.

My mother lived in the dementia unit at Aranui for 18 months after 2 years in another Auckland facility. The decision to move her was difficult but it couldn't have been more worthwhile. Significantly higher staff/resident ratio than MOH Guidelines: several care-givers, in-unit qualified nurse at all times, plus full-time trained activities person Monday to Friday. Kindly caring environment with families always welcome to take part in residents' life.

I visit my mother in Aranui Dementia Unit 2-3 times/week. There's good staff/resident ratio, caregivers are involved, respectful and kind, and delightful activities staff are present during the day Mon-Fri. I appreciate that care is taken to ensure my mother is well and appropriately dressed, and the premises are clean and well maintained. Clinical care and communication excellent.
Suggestions to Management or General Comment
The Supervisor has provided exemplary leadership and I regret that she has recently left. Please ensure that an equally involved, capable person replaces her. I'd like to see an Occupational Therapist employed to provide direction for activities and for more music e.g. 'Music and Memory, programme', pianist for sing-alongs

Helping you find the right retirement or restcare facilities.
The team at Aged Advisor are locals that have first hand experience with Retirement Villages, Rest Homes and Aged Care facilities, either through our line of work (providing services to residents within these facilities) or by having family or loved ones living there. We do not own or run restcare or retirement facilities, and we do not own any shares (personally or as a company) in any Retirement Complexes or Groups - so we have no financial interests in these facilities. We simply want the best for the people that live there or are looking to make a decision of moving to one.
