Description
MISSION STATEMENT: To provide quality Christian care and support for the elderly.

Selwyn Sunningdale Village in Claudelands, central Hamilton, offers rest home care.

Formerly owned by Hamilton RSA Veterans Home Trust and set amidst a large established garden and grounds, the Village comprises a 31-bed rest home, together with eight rental units. It provides care services and retirement accommodation for ex-service men and women and their dependents, as well as residents from non-service backgrounds. Short-term care can be arranged on an individual basis, as required.

Our aim is to provide a warm and friendly environment. The rest home is staffed with senior caregivers 24 hours each day, assisted by Registered Nurses and health professional staff trained to meet the particular needs of those in their care.

We want all our residents to have an enjoyable time. Our manager is happy to meet with you and to talk over your specific requirements.
