Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Situated in what is undisputedly Nelson’s best retirement village location, Green Gables offers a premium option for both aged care and retirement living, with beautifully-finished independent living apartments and luxury Care Suites providing Rest Home and Hospital level care.

Our desirable central Nelson location means we’re lucky enough to have an array of great shops, cafes and restaurants on our doorstep. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a place to catch up with family and friends! Our proximity to town makes it easy for you to remain part of the community and enjoy social activities at your local clubs and societies, just as you’ve always done.

With just 61 Care Suites on site, Green Gables has an intimate, friendly feel that will soon make you feel right at home.

Care Suites provide both Rest Home and Hospital level care, which means you can relax knowing you won’t have the upheaval of moving again if your needs increase. Choose from either a studio Care Suite with an open-plan bedroom and lounge, or a one-bedroom Care Suite with a separate bedroom and living area. Some Care Suites are large enough to accommodate couples, so you can be together – even if one of you requires Hospital level care.

All Care Suites have a heat pump and full ensuite bathroom, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge and a kettle – perfect for making a cuppa when friends and family come to visit. We also have options with private balconies and/or patios. You own the right to occupy your Care Suite, so you can personalise it with your favourite furniture and treasured pieces. A DHB assessment is not required for care that is paid for privately.

Your Guest Services Manager will get to know you so they can help fill your day with the things you love to do. Whether it’s as simple as video chatting with family overseas or something that requires a bit more organisation, like meeting friends at a show – either way, you can relax and let us take care of the logistics. Our activities calendar is packed with a variety of group and solo pursuits, so you can choose what you feel like doing. Hop in our van to explore an exciting new destination each week or enjoy some me-time listening to your own personalised playlist with our award-winning I Love Music programme.

Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings…all are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty classics you’d make at home. Don’t fancy what’s on offer? Have a chat to our friendly chef and kitchen team, so we can understand your needs. Good food is best shared, and family and friends are welcome to come dine with you. Enjoy a barista coffee and a bite to eat from the onsite café or book in for a meal in the main or private dining room.

Oceania is a leading provider of premium healthcare services in New Zealand. With over 40 locations across the country, we’ve been part of local communities for over 50 years. We’re recognised as industry leaders in care, winning awards for innovation, food, staff training and community engagement.

When it comes to your care, you know what you do and don’t like – and we want to know your preferences too. Because everyone is different, all of our residents get a personalised care plan, so from meals to medications; everything that’s important to you is covered.
