Good Friends – Living Well Centre

Project Overview

Arvida Living Well Park Lane (Good Friends) supports older New Zealanders to live their best lives in the homes they know and love – with private home-help services, door-to-door transport, and beautiful community spaces for social connection, activities and fitness.

Amotto Consultancy worked with Arvida Living Well Park Lane (Good Friends) to develop site-specific operational procedures for their aquatic facilities and then provided onsite staff training sessions for these SSOPs.

Amotto Consultancy also assisted the Good Friends staff to apply for Quality Pools accreditation, which is the operational benchmark set by Recreation Aotearoa for all retirement village pool and spa facilities and is endorsed by the Retirement Village Association (RVA)
