Description
Elmwood is a spacious and Village with a choice of comfortable dwellings to choose from. From enjoying activities in the community centre, or entertaining friends and family, life is easy at Elmwood.

Then there’s the location – right on the doorstep of the beautiful Auckland Botanic Gardens and with easy access to the motorway. For those who prefer not to drive, there’s a bus stop outside the village, shops and cafés across the road or join one of the regular excursions in the village mini-bus. For your convenience there’s also an onsite hairdresser, weekly wellness clinics with a registered nurse and meals delivered to the dining room or your door if you feel like taking a break from cooking.

Life at Elmwood Village is relaxed. Do your own thing or get to know your neighbours in this friendly, close knit community. Wander down to the community centre for Happy Hour, pick out a book from the library or get your heart rate up in the gym. There are plenty of activities to get involved in if you feel like some company - exercise groups, arts and crafts, quizzes, live music, guest speakers and church services.

There’s even luxury care available on site if you ever need it.

Part of Oceania Healthcare.
Available by Occupation Right Agreement secured by a first ranking mortgage in favour of the statutory supervisor on behalf of the residents. Entry age 70 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.
