Summerset serviced apartments are ideal for over 70's who are living independently at the moment but would feel more confident with support close at hand. These modern, mobility friendly apartments are warm, comfortable and full of features that make them easy to live in.

With options for both couples and singles, serviced apartments offer a generous double bedroom, spacious separate living area with kitchenette, and an ensuite with accessible shower, grab rails and non-slip floor.

Serviced apartments come with the confidence of extra care and support on hand. Our range of service packages cover help with housekeeping, meals and personal care.

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.
