Description
HBH’s spacious apartments offer the best of both worlds: the freedom to live independently, with the reassurance that help is just a call-button away. Our one to two bedroom apartments include full security and internal lift access from the car park. All apartments have a fresh, modern interior design with easy flow and convenient access to amenities.

Residents can choose from any or all of our residential services, such as activities, outings, meals, home help or nursing care.

Care philosophy
To give older people the opportunity to maintain their independence and live with dignity and safety in their own home, knowing that support and nursing care is right at hand if required.

Additional care available
• Housework (weekly cleaning, spring clean or one-off clean, bed making, linen changing, laundry).
• Dining options (dine in the dining room or have meals delivered to your apartment).
• Personal care (showering and dressing assistance).
• 24/7 Registered Nurse emergency response and phone advice.
• Companionship and chaperone service.
• Apartment residents have priority for access to rest home and hospital.
• Bring your DHB funded home support with you to the Village, or HBH can provide it.

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.
