Story from Ian and his drivers
Arvida Good Friends is brought to you by Arvida, one of New Zealand's largest retirement and aged care operators. Over 6,000 older adults live in our communities around the country. But we know it's not for everyone.
Arvida Good Friends enables people to remain living successfully and independently in their own homes, while creating more social connections with their community.
Living Well as we grow older is about having choices about how and where we live, being able to find the help we want when we need it and finding it easy to stay active and connected with friends, family and hobbies. Arvida Good Friends gives you all this, from the comfort of your home.
