The Orchards is a retirement village in Glenfield on Auckland’s North Shore. Recently complete, this boutique village offers retirement living set amongst beautiful grounds and gardens and is home to a community of residents that enjoy the benefits of the laid-back retirement lifestyle it offers.

Residents have access to beautiful landscaped gardens and a range of village amenities including historic Cox House Café perfect for gatherings with family and friends.

The Orchards has a clear purpose – to provide a supportive environment which empowers people to live the life they choose. As a Metlifecare village, we believe our resident-directed approach is one of our key points of difference for residents. They retain a higher level of independence and decision-making, and prolong their wider community connections and relationships. Our approach also means that the care provided to every resident may be different. To achieve this successfully, we employ people who genuinely connect with and support residents to provide what is needed.
