RESIDENTIAL DEMENTIA CARE
- at Selwyn Park Village, with The Selwyn Foundation Group.
With views of the western hills, the Selwyn Park Retirement Village at 15 Puriri Park Road, Maunu, has a peaceful outlook over its own ‘village green’ fringed with beautiful mature trees which are visited by native birds.
Our 15-bed ‘Jacaranda Court' Dementia Unit has a fresh and inviting appearance and a well-equipped interior, contributing to our residents well-being. Built on one level, all rooms are single with a hand basin.
Also on-site we offer Rest Home and Hospital Care as well as Villas for independent living.
Our aim is to provide a warm and friendly environment. We are staffed with caregivers and other professional staff trained to meet the particular needs of those in their care. Although our doctor visits regularly, some families may prefer to continue to have their own GP.
We want all our residents to have an enjoyable time. Our manager is happy to meet with family members, and respond to any questions or concerns you may have. It is appreciated if you take the time to make an appointment - telephone 438 1099 ext 134.
MAKING PEOPLE FEEL AT HOME
There is open visiting at home in the park and family and friends are always very welcome. To help residents to feel at home, please feel encouraged to bring personal things such as pictures, photographs, a favourite comfy chair and treasured mementos.
There are many special areas including a pleasant lounge. Our restful garden and the park greens give a real country feel to our dementia unit and village as a whole.

THE SELWYN FOUNDATION GROUP – AN OVERVIEW and VISION STATEMENT
- The Selwyn Foundation has been around for a very long time.
Selwyn’s residents mirror New Zealand society as a whole, having people from all kinds of backgrounds, life experiences and interests. These days, people entering our retirement villages are older - now that people are living and remaining active for much longer.
Nevertheless, people residing in Rest Homes as well as those living independently, are encouraged to live as full a life as is humanly possible through maintaining existing links with community activities such as the RSA Club, local churches, Probus, U3A and sports clubs. Organised activities are on offer too – and managers are always interested in hearing of new ideas for activities, outings and social gatherings.
Today’s retirement villages are the culmination of over 50 years of progress. It was towards the late 1940s that the Anglican Church’s Auckland City Mission became very concerned about the plight of elderly people to cope in sometimes dilapidated houses, often too large for them once children had grown up and moved away.
The Mission had already done considerable work with older people by 1954 when the first 20 retired people became residents at Selwyn Village in Point Chevalier. This was the first rest home and retirement complex of its kind built in New Zealand. It still exists, although almost grown beyond recognition.
In 1967, the Mission arranged for the creation of The Selwyn Foundation as a separate charitable trust, specifically set up to look after this special concern for the needs of older people in our society.
Named after George Augustus Selwyn, first Anglican Bishop of New Zealand, the Foundation is an independent perpetual trust and not-for-profit organisation. Selwyn owns or manages retirement facilities in Northland, throughout greater Auckland and in the Waikato. It continues to grow and flourish - it is here to stay!
- Providing quality Christian care for the elderly.
The Selwyn Foundation Group invites you to take a closer look at our commitment to Christian values, quality care, accommodation and services, which continue to make us a leader in the provision of a wide range of accommodation and service options for the elderly in New Zealand.
It is committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of all residents through the ‘Selwyn Way’ wellness concept.
The Selwyn Foundation Group owns and manages a number of facilities throughout the North Island, and is one of the largest not-for-profit providers of aged care in New Zealand.
We place a high value on honesty and mutual respect. We strive to see our people fulfilled through the creation of work environments, where openness, communication, teamwork and safety are paramount. Our staff and volunteers share a specific interest in older adults, and undertake ongoing training in the particular needs of those in their care.
We strive to achieve excellence, continually seeking means for improvement and innovation in our care and services. Furthermore, we will, with integrity, adopt the highest standards of ethical behaviour in all our activities: care, legal, financial, environmental and all business practices.
