Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Family-friendly is how we’re often described by our residents - and we certainly live up to that reputation! From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, at Elmwood you’ll feel right at home.

You can relax knowing you won’t have to move again as support in your Care Suite is provided at both Rest Home and Hospital level.

All Care Suites feature:

• A full ensuite bathroom
• Kitchenette with fridge and microwave
• Heaters

We don’t have visiting hours at Elmwood because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. Just like at home, friends and family can join you anytime for a catch up. We’re just around the corner from the Southern Motorway, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes.

You’ve cared for others your whole life, now it’s time to put yourself first. Care Suites offer you all the comforts of home along with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ll get the very best care and support.

The Ministry of Health conducts regular audits of Residential Care Facilities. They can be found HERE.

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.
