Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Burlington Care Centre is architecturally designed for Hospital and Rest Home level residents with large spacious rooms and living areas.

Burlington is a fully owned subsidiary of Qestral Corporation Limited, a developer of new generation retirement villages, with integrated care facilities. Qestral has also developed the popular Alpine View Lifestyle Village, in Prestons Road, Waitikiri, Christchurch.

The complex represents a new generation in retirement living. Residents can safeguard their health while enjoying an unprecedented level of activities and personal space.

Situated in Prestons Road, Redwood in the north-eastern side of Christchurch, it is also close to the Main North Road. Its locations provide easy access from the city or from rural areas.

This is an exciting part of the city with a new community shopping centre just down the road from the village that features a New World supermarket, café and retail stores including a pharmacy.

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.
