"Caring is our Culture"

New Zealand aged care services limited also known as NZACS, began like any good thing, as an idea.

Sprinkle a few decades of aged care experience on top, a bit of wonder alongside some charm and you will find what we now call our company.

Incorporated in 2020 by one of the industry’s most experienced operators, Peter Leathem, New Zealand Aged Care Services Limited is a rapidly growing portfolio of New Zealand aged care assets.

New Zealand Aged Care Services Limited Group currently operates across eleven sites, with seven aged care facilities and six retirement villages with plans to continue growing.

We have a clear vision for the way people in our homes are cared for and can choose to live their lives.

We want to welcome you home.


When you have a vision and a passion for an industry such as Aged Care you need a team equipped with just as much experience, knowledge and dedication.

We are so proud of our people! We believe in the mantra of team work and find strength in working together towards the main goal!

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
