We are pleased to be able to offer eight Care Suites for people who need residential care. The Care Suites create the option of having care delivered in a unit that offers a greater sense of independence and of still being in your own “home”.
The Care Suites are very much larger than a standard room and offer a small kitchenette, a large built-in wardrobe, a private en suite (Shower, toilet and hand basin), a lounge area, a separate bedroom and direct access patio. They have also been constructed to allow for easy care provision with all the design features fitting for a resident with a higher level of dependency incorporated.
The Care Suites are offered through an Occupation Right Agreement (ORA) which is purchased by the incoming resident. The ORA is available between $130,000 and $140,000 (the Capital Sum Advance) plus a non refundable site contribution fee of $7,500. This site contribution element is retained by the Care Facility and is used to support the care that we provide.
The Capital Sum Advance is held for the duration of a resident’s occupation of the Care Suite and 0.75% per month is deducted, up to a maximum of 36 months by way of deferred management fee. So, if the ORA cost was $135,000 and it is held for 24 months, then an amount of $110,700 will be returned to you. This is the original $135,000 less 24 months of 0.75% of $135,000 (i.e. 24 x $1012.50 or $24,300). Where residency extends beyond 36 months, there are no further monthly accruals for the deferred management fee.
Apart from these costs there is a daily service charge of $6.00 payable monthly in advance. The services covered by this daily service charge are detailed in the ORA. An application for a Care Suite can only be made after a potential resident has had a Need Assessment completed and they have been assessed as requiring rest home or hospital level of care. All costs associated with the assessed level of care will be met by the resident either privately, partially or on a full subsidy after assessment by Work and Income. A separate admission agreement must also be completed alongside the ORA.

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.
