A Guide to Aged Residential Care A Guide to Aged Residential Care A Guide to Aged Residential Care

Care at Metlifecare is deeply personal and always personalised.

Our Aged Residential Care supports every resident to live a fulfilling life in a safe and welcoming setting that feels like home.

We take time to get to know you, so we can better support and care for you. We’ll develop a personalised care plan with you – to understand your preferences and help you to continue doing the things you love.

Your friends and family will always be welcome to spend time with you, and they can join in for meals and celebrations as well as pop in for a cup of tea and chat.

The need for care can be unpredictable, making it hard to guarantee that a care place will be available at times. Although we can’t always control availability, we encourage you to get in touch - we are here to help. People come first, always. That’s our Care Promise.

Our specialist dementia community helps residents and their families with the complex challenges of living with dementia while balancing freedom and security.

CARE AT KARORI VILLAGE

Established over 100 years ago, Karori Village offers rest home-level, hospital-level, dementia, respite and palliative care. It is ideally located in the residential heart of Karori in Wellington.
Our Care Home at Karori Village offers a warm, caring and secure environment for residents. We provide a home away from home, when total independence is no longer an option and rest home or hospital care is needed.

Our Village stands in just over 3/4 of a hectare, surrounded by established trees and mature gardens including roses, lavender and many other varieties of flowers as well as deciduous and evergreen trees. It overlooks the valley with glimpses of the harbour.

Just a few minutes from Marsden Village, as well as the Karori Mall and 10 minutes from the centre of the city, it is well situated.
