Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
The Ashley Care Suites at the Russley Village offers bespoke, upscale, and personalised care. We aim to be a complete departure from traditional, regimented care homes. During your time here, you will enjoy a client-centred approach, and butler service, in a homely boutique hotel-style facility.

The creation of Ashley Suites was purposeful. We sought to provide a care offering and environment that was exceptional. Creating a beautiful residence from which tailored and meaningful care could be delivered, overlaid with an upscale hospitality offering. A new perspective on delivering discerning retirees an uncompromised lifestyle and care in their latter years.

Personalised Care
There is significant emphasis placed on our resident needs, rather than adopting a regimented and ‘tick box’ approach. Our residents take the lead in their lifestyle, supported by a collaborative approach between clinical staff and family. The extra time, effort and energy to adopt and engage in this model of care – has delivered significant outcomes enhancing the daily life of both our residents and team.

Professional Support
Ashley Suites has high ratios of skilled and experienced staff in both care and hospitality. A physiotherapist and GP is incorporated in the daily fee, providing peace of mind that you will always have the treatment you require. Other allied services such a Podiatry, can be booked directly.

The Highest Standard
Ashley Suites has been nominated in the Jackson Van Built Award Category for NZACA 2021. This award recognises exceptional design, construction or changes to a care facility to create a positive environment.

There is no assessment required – contact us, today.
