New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA), is a not-for-profit, national membership organisation which represents all parts of the aged-care residential sector. Members provide long and short term residential services to the over 65 cohort.

Membership services:
Training and Professional Development: NZACA operates a number of topical seminar and professional development courses through out the country for caregivers, enrolled nurses, registered nurses and managers, so they can be up-to-date with the latest developments in the sector. All the latest details for these days can be found in our Training Days Section.
Individual support: NZACA provides support and advice to individual members, particularly on matters that have potential national or wider membership implications.
Representation: NZACA increasingly represents members in a number of government forums and official committee, as well as to Minister/MPs/Officials, making sure members’ concerns and the sector are represented at the highest level.
Engaging the Media: NZACA is the first port of call for the media on aged residential care issues, articulating sector positions and views.
Communication: NZACA sends all members weekly updates via the In Touch newsletter on sector issues. Excellence in Care, our quarterly magazine, provides more detailed reports and the website is a vital resource for all members.
Branch structure: NZACA is organised around 12 branches that provide regional and local support to members.
Members only section: All full NZACA members have access to the Members Only Section, where the latest information, papers and details are available.
Annual Conference: Each year the organisation holds a conference focused on providing interesting and topical speakers on business and clinical sessions. A comprehensive trade area also providers the latest information on products and services to the sector. All the latest details on the next conference can be found in the Conference Section.
