Testimonials
I have enjoyed working at Fitzroy over the past 10 years, being a smaller Rest Home allows me to get to know everyone. Assisting them in their daily needs and getting to know each persons idiosyncrasies, which helps the transition from their family homes to their new home with us. Keri Smith - Senior Caregiver/Team Leader

I have been living at "Fitzroy of Merivale" for the past 4 years and what a wonderful time it has been for me. I am fortunate and enjoy two adjoining rooms with my own outdoor area, morning sun and an affectionate "adopted" cat. We are always looking for new friends to share our beautiful home. Whether it is the warmth and caring staff or the proximity to Merivale and all it has to offer, I can sincerely recommend "Fitzroy" as a place to live, in comfort, style and security of knowing one needs are always being met. Mrs Davies - Resident

"My mother moved into Fitzroy in early 2011 when the earthquakes got too much for her to continue living by herself. Since then she continues to enjoy life there being looked after in a very cozy environment with good food, company and a full programme of activities. It gives my family a real sense of peace of mind that mother is well cared for. Anne Harvey - Christchurch

"My mother was extremely well cared for in the almost 4 years she lived at Fitzroy. Fitzroy provides a unique, tranquil atmosphere where people can maintain their dignity when they can no longer live in their own homes. Our family was most grateful for the way staff met our mothers needs, particularly when her health failed. Thank you" Dr Richard Acland - Fendalton

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.
