Description
This boutique retirement village offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity in the heart of Karori. The village is situated just a short stroll from the two shopping malls, library, indoor heated swimming pool, bowling club and more. The apartments have been designed and constructed to provide safe quality living. If you value an enriched, active and enjoyable retirement lifestyle, this is where you should live.

We offer one-bedroom and two bedroom apartments, complete with lounge and dining area, a full kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities. The 'Village Centre' located on the ground floor contains a dining room, a study and a lounge with an open gas fireplace, and is a place where residents can relax, dine and socialise. In the study, there is a communal computer with unlimited Internet access for all residents. Our apartments are attractive to residents who would like to be as independent as possible, but may like access to helpful housekeeping and healthcare ‘services’. There is also a 24-hour emergency call button in each apartment to ensure that every resident can get help at the touch of a button.

There are a range of care services available to apartment residents; and these can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual. Services available include: daily meals, morning and afternoon teas, weekly/daily cleaning of the apartment, weekly/daily laundering, of sheets and towels, removal of household rubbish, caregiver and nursing support, assistance with outside appointments, medication monitoring and involvement in organised activities and outings. If necessary, residents can create a core plan best suited to their needs. These daily 'services' provide worry-free living, giving residents more time to relax and enjoy their surroundings.

‘Huntleigh Rest Home and Hospital' is located behind ‘Huntleigh Apartments.’ This is a separate establishment, however, should a resident of Huntleigh Apartments need a higher more intensive level of care, they would have priority for admission to the Rest Home and Hospital.
Testimonials
Testimonials
“I honestly believe that this was the best move I could have ever made. My life has continued on as normal with the same friends, interests and hobbies like I always did, but now I don’t have to worry about the hard work – Enliven takes care of that. And I know help is available from the adjoining rest home if I ever need it.” – Kay, Huntleigh Apartments resident.

“We don’t live in each other’s pockets, but we’ve got communal library, lounge and dining areas, along with a beautiful courtyard garden. We often take advantage of these for social events. It’s a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbours, and everyone here is really friendly.” – Graeme, Huntleigh Apartments resident.

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.
