    Helping you get the best from life

    Good Friends is brought to you by Arvida, a New Zealand retirement group that’s transforming the aged-care experience in New Zealand.

    Arvida’s goal is to create or support living environments that allow older and less-abled New Zealanders to maintain meaningful connections to the people, community and activities they love. Arvida calls this ‘living a life with soul’.

    Living a life with soul embraces a holistic view of physical, mental and spiritual health – mind, body, heart and soul. It means being mentally stimulated by social, intellectual and creative experiences that are personalised and meaningful.
