Mercy Care Manaaki Atawhai 

Doing ordinary things extraordinarily well

Mercy Care  honours the Mercy Mission and Values as our underpinning philosophy of care and provides a practical approach through which they can be implemented. 

This approach is holistic and resident-focused; everything that we do is to support our residents to live the fullest life they can; that they are able to live with meaning and purpose as unique individuals. 

Mercy Care  promotes a deep sense of family, loving and compassionate relationships and a caring environment where residents truly feel at home. 

In offering Mercy Care  we bring our heart and our best self.  It is an approach that demands professionalism and skill at all levels to enable excellence in care. 

Mercy Care  is Mercy Parklands, it is who we are.
