Should you need nursing care, there’s no need to move from the village; we can provide both rest home and hospital level care. Nursing support is available in our modern, self-contained serviced apartments as well as in our Care Centre rooms.

Our modern, purpose-build Care Centre at Summerset by the Park provides you with the choice of a standard, premium or deluxe room. And our serviced apartments offer one bedroom, a spacious separate living area with kitchenette, and an ensuite including accessible shower, grab rails and non-slip floors.

All our nursing support is certified by the Ministry of Health, and our friendly and professionally trained Care Centre staff are supervised by registered nurses and available on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
