At Edith Cavell, our village reflects the residents who choose us, the local communities around us and the people that support and work for us. You are at home with us.

Living in Sumner means you have the best of both worlds; being close to the city and a major hospital, whilst also being located in a friendly, seaside village with rural environs.

The sea air is good for everyone and to wake to a big clear sky in the morning and walk the beach before coffee is part of the secret that is Sumner.

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.
