Description
Crestwood is a place like no other. Part retirement village, part peaceful sanctuary, this is a unique, idyllic and desirable place to live.

If you or your loved ones are starting to struggle with life at home our serviced apartments provides the perfect balance between support and care.

"When Mum was still at home we'd have to spend time doing the vacuuming, the laundry and things like that. Now we come in, enjoy each other's company and make the most of every moment we have together," says daughter of a Serviced Apartment resident.

Nestled amongst six hectares of glorious gardens in New Lynn, Crestwood offers a retirement lifestyle like no other. With its beautiful established grounds complete with private bush walks and birdsong, as well as friendly, caring staff and a real old-fashioned Kiwi community spirit, this is truely a sanctuary away from it all.

Close by is everything you need, including shops, cafes, amenities and Titirangi Golf Course.

With a vibrant community spirit within the village, there is always something to do. There is a lively social programme or fantastic facilities to enjoy.

Offering a range of living options, there is independent living in comfortable villas and continuum of care with serviced apartments and a rest home on-site, all finished to a high standard.

Living here is easy and you can continue to live life the way you want to.

Testimonials
“My daughter in Kelston and son in Te Atatu looked at the various support options in the local area and thought the serviced apartment living at Crestwood really stood out. All I can say is they made a wonderful choice,” says Mary, who has now lived at Crestwood for almost 9 years.

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. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
