Description
At Clutha Views Village we believe in providing personable, compassionate, safe, respectful care, adding value to the quality of everyday living. Set in tranquil rural surroundings is a very friendly, supportive & homely village where residents are empowered to maintain an independent lifestyle within a secure environment.

We have on offer a selection of new, modern purpose built villas adjacent to Clutha Views Lifecare rest home which is set on more than 2 hectares of flat grounds in North Balclutha with views of the surrounding farmland, river valley and township. We know it is very important to offer choices and to really listen to what our residents and their families want. Recognising the individual needs of our residents and to promote a friendly and comfortable environment is an important part of our philosophy. Respecting the dignity, beliefs and culture of all helps us make each day the best it can be.

Our residents and their families comment on the homely feeling we have created here. We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Rosemary Thomson, Village Coordinator on 03 418 3220 for more information or an appointment to view.

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.
