"When my Mum came to Wendover she was very unwell. Thanks to a combination of good meals, regular medication, good company and lots of TLC she regained her health. One day I came to visit and here she was arriving back at Wendover in a taxi. She was sitting up like the Queen in the front seat after being out shopping at the local mall. I could hardly believe my eyes!" - daughter of resident.

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.
