Linrose Village is part of the Archer family and provides care for people within an environment of love, compassion and support.

Archer is a Charitable Trust with a Christian ethos but respects the right for everyone to have their own faith story.

Our motto of 'living life...loving life' is about providing a family atmosphere where all our people enjoy their time at Linrose so that they not only 'live life' here, but 'love life' from everything we offer.

"I was looking for heaven in 2008 and I found it at Linrose"

"I have resided at Linrose Village for the past ten years and have found it a very pleasant place to be. Neigbours willing to lend a hand when and if necessary. Plenty of company or just enjoy being on your own. We have outings for meals and entertainment here. And happy hour every Friday. We play housie and rummikub here and have exercises. We also have a bus to take us shopping weekly and a visiting hairdresser and podiatrist"

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.
