Aged Advisor has announced the winners of its annual ‘People’s Choice Awards’ for 2017.

The Aged Advisor site received just under 2000 reviews and ratings for approximately 450 facilities for this year’s awards. The reviews are used to determine the finalists and winners of the awards.

Nigel Matthews, General Manager of Aged Advisor, has described it as “a really good result for the second year running”. Matthews launched the site two years ago to give people the opportunity to give feedback on their experiences in New Zealand’s aged care and retirement villages.

“We were delighted with the huge increase in reviews, and responses for this year’s awards. Feedback from village and care managers clearly shows that this is having a positive impact on the staff and residents – as well as in promoting their facility.”

Awards were presented to aged care facilities of fewer than 40 residents, and more than 40 residents and retirement villages in both the North and South islands.

Malyon House in Tauranga was one of the winners, taking out the ‘Best Aged Care over 40 beds’ in the North Island category.

Manager Amy Munro says the award has given them all a “warm fuzzy feeling”.

“We’ve got an absolutely brilliant team and they deserve every accolade they get,” she says.

The award has been sitting in the reception area and residents and their families have commented on how the award is a “wonderful recognition” of the team’s hard work and dedication.

Catherine Archer, Village Manager of award winner and finalist Remuera Rise, said their residents were “over the moon” to have won the award.
