Description
Merrivale Retirement Village offers you serviced apartments - with the independence and privacy of your own apartment, safe in the knowledge that extra support is there if you need it.

Our residents enjoy:
• A midday meal
• Laundry service
• Apartment cleaning
• An interesting range of activities

The extent to which you participate in village activities is completely up to you – you can be as involved or as private as you choose.

This is the best of both worlds, relieving the pressure of daily life, while giving you more time for the things you enjoy, all in a supportive community adjacent to Merrivale Care Home.

For further information, please phone Jenny Baker on 0800 60 80 99 (free) or 021 838 128.

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.
