Description
Welcome to The Wood, an Arvida Retirement Village close to the heart of Nelson.

We are a welcoming retirement community offering security and care in a happy, home-like environment. We have a dedicated team of trained staff; whose focus is on positive ageing.

Centrally located close to the Milton Street shops, parks, gardens and just minutes from Nelson’s CBD. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens you’ll find tastefully designed Villas, Serviced Apartments and Studios, our Rest Home and Hospital.

In a serviced apartment or studio your weekly fee can include help with the cleaning, meals and laundry should you wish.

If you are looking for a retirement community where you can continue to enjoy life to the full, and where people respect and look after each other, we’d love the opportunity to show you around our village.

We currently have serviced apartments and studios available, why not give us a call and experience life at Arvida for yourself?

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. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
