Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
If you currently live in your own home and can no longer manage on your own, Kerikeri Retirement Village provides all the care you need while offering you as much independence and freedom as possible.

We encourage your friends and family to visit and to join you for meals, and for you to get out and about, just as you would at home. The biggest difference is that we’ll take care of the cooking and cleaning, plus there’s someone on hand to help with your physical well being, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys socialising we have a very busy social diary packed with outings and activities. If not we’ll respect your right to privacy.

You’re welcome to have your own newspapers delivered daily and a personal telephone, television, computer and radio in your room, or you can make use of those in the communal areas for free. We also provide Skype, a library and a gymnasium.

Other amenities such as an onsite hairdresser and ‘mobile shop’ are available for your convenience, at your own cost.
