Burlington Care Centre is architecturally designed for Hospital and Rest Home level residents with large spacious rooms and living areas.

Burlington is a fully owned subsidiary of Qestral Corporation Limited, a developer of new generation retirement villages, with integrated care facilities. Qestral has also developed the popular Alpine View Lifestyle Village, in Prestons Road, Waitikiri, Christchurch.

The complex represents a new generation in retirement living. Residents can safeguard their health while enjoying an unprecedented level of activities and personal space.

Situated in Prestons Road, Redwood in the north-eastern side of Christchurch, it is also close to the Main North Road. Its locations provide easy access from the city or from rural areas.

This is an exciting part of the city with a new community shopping centre just down the road from the village that features a New World supermarket, café and retail stores including a pharmacy.

“Dad recently passed away and for the last week of his life we came to Burlington Village. The space we had to be with Dad over this difficult time was wonderful. We had a large room and lounge with a en suite and kitchenette and a lovely outdoor area onto a great green space. We brought in Dad's treasured items and stereo and plants so he could feel more at home. It made it easier for us to have space and private time with Dad in his few final days. The staff at Burlington are amazing. Everyone was genuinely caring and did whatever they could do to help Dad and us. They have an amazing team. They kept Dad comfortable, clean and pain free. I'm so grateful to them and feel really lucky to have found Burlington Village.”
