LOCATION:

Situated in Wilson Street on the edge of the Firth of Thames approximately 2.5 kms from downtown Thames and along the coast road to the Coromandel, Tararu Village is located beside the sea and adjacent to our Tararu Rest home/Hospital facility. It is approximately 1 1/2 hours from Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga.

YOUR HOME IS YOUR CASTLE:

Tararu Retirement Village is designed to provide the key elements for independent living - dignity, companionship, security and care. All homes at Tararu Village are built north facing with every consideration given to privacy. Some homes have excellent views out onto the Hauraki Gulf and across the Firth of Thames. The sunsets are magnificent. All homes are two bedrooms, some also with a study, open plan lounge/dining area, fully equiped kitchen, bathroom/ensuite with wet area shower and complete with quality floor coverings, drapes, light fittings, auto garage door opener and the emergency call button for ongoing security.


“CARING IS OUR PASSION”

To know that a continuing care hospital is on-site and close at hand provides peace of mind for residents and their families. At Tararu Village our Rest Home & Hospital facility came first and, for some time has held the reputation as a homely friendly place where the best attention is provided at all times. The experienced, professional team of registered nurses, caregivers and support staff are on hand to provide quality assurance, support and service to all residents in their care. Tararu Rest Home & Hospital has a warm, relaxed, family atmosphere where new friends are made every day and residents become part of one large family. Regular meetings are held with residents for the sharing of ideas to best provide the services that meet their ever changing needs. Tararu Rest Home & Hospital had been renovated and refurbished as part of the Tararu Village residential development. Tararu Rest Home & Hospital foster the community to provide the best environment, encouragement and support necessary to promote independence, dignity and quality of life.

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.
