About Ranfurly Care
Ranfurly Care is situated in Epsom, Auckland, virtually on the corner of Ranfurly and Manukau Roads. The site has been a centre for a range of different services for people with intellectual disabilities for many years. It has been the main base for Ranfurly Care since the organisation was incorporated by family members in 1991.
Ranfurly Care operates residential and Activity Day Centre Services on the Ranfurly Road site, as well as a separate Residential Service for more able people at the Cornwall Park Avenue complex.

Our Residential Mission
The Ranfurly Care Society promotes the spiritual, physical and intellectual well-being of people with an intellectual disability. We stand as an advocate in the community, working for an environment that is protective, caring and educational; offering choices, promoting social contact and building a sense of achievement.
Our Residential Philosophy
We believe in the value of relationships and promoting a harmonious family environment for our residents. We encourage full family support and involvement on a daily basis.
We employ caregivers that are committed to providing continuity of care in a secure environment. These caregivers are strongly encouraged to work in a supportive rather than a directive role.
We work to integrate residents into the local and wider community and provide a stimulating and enjoyable choice of programme to suit a diverse range of residents’ needs.

We are committed to developing a realistic level of independence and choice for each student and promoting supported employment for them as appropriate. We recognise that maintaining a team of highly skilled staff ensures the quality of programmes offered.
