Make your home at Edith Cavell Lifecare & Village

When it comes to everyday life, Edith Cavell makes it easy with a choice of spacious studio rooms, village townhouses, and large rest home rooms, complete with WiFi and a call bell system. There’s also an on-site hospital to give you added peace of mind.

Part of the Sumner community since 1970 and extensively refurbished since then, Edith Cavell Lifecare & Village is set amongst landscaped gardens just a stroll from the friendly Sumner village and the sea. We also offer short stay, respite, convalescence and palliative care.

We offer everything from a scooter bay to SKY TV, physiotherapy, podiatry, hairdressing and health checks. We have a range of recreational activities including indoor bowls, exercise classes, quizzes and social gatherings. Our facility van is always on hand for outings.

But don’t just take our word for it, see what our resident Pat has to say ...

A staff nurse at Oxford hospital for 22 years, Pat and her late husband Roy moved to Edith Cavell Lifecare in 2014. “We’d rented an apartment in Sumner while our house was being repaired after the earthquake and we loved it here.”

That’s one of the reasons they liked the sound of the townhouse at Edith Cavell village and they weren’t disappointed. “We walked into the house and Roy sat down and that was that. It had a great view of the hills and plenty of storage. We thought it was just A1.”

Pat says she recommends Edith Cavell to anyone that asks. “Because it’s small, you get to know the staff really well and the other residents. The outlook is almost country and because the bus-stop is at the bottom of the driveway, it’s so easy to get around. Every time I come back on the bus, it feels like I’m coming home.”
