We believe the Residents of Chatsford have the right to self determination in their retirement.

Where they may require additional support to achieve this, be it in their own homes or in the Residential Care Centre, our aim is to offer sufficient complimentary care to enable each Resident to maintain maximum independence and quality of life.

This support will not only address physical care and comfort, but will recognise each Residents right to be treated with dignity and respect.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
