Make your home at Coldstream Lifecare

When it comes to everyday life, Coldstream makes it easy with village, rest home, hospital, and respite care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a 24-hour call system and WiFi.

Part of the close-knit Ashburton community, Coldstream is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, just a hop, skip and jump from the Ashburton shopping centre, where you’ll find all the essentials including a supermarket and pharmacy.

We offer everything from hairdressing to speech therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry and SKY TV. We have a range of recreational activities including happy hour, board games, gardening, crafts and indoor bowls. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
