Description
Safety, independence, companionship and freedom!

All these things plus many more await residents at Longford Park Village, a friendly, caring retirement village situated on a flat 11 acre site in Takanini. Shopping is a breeze, with a supermarket and retail shop complex right across the road and another supermarket nearby.

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.

Residents have the choice of living in either one of 144 independent residential units, or one of 39 studio and one bedroom serviced apartments. Serviced apartments offer freedom of household duties including food preparation, with delicious lunches and dinners served by the chef in the village’s own restaurant. There are also 7 independent, self catering one bedroom apartments. All units and apartments provide residents with private, comfortable living and the peace of mind that comes with knowing that 24-hour emergency help is available at the touch of a button using the emergency call system installed in all units. The village has a range of price options and is home to over 250 people.
Testimonials
Mrs Frances Wallen, a serviced apartment resident. "I was living in my own home and wasn't eating very well and was lonely on my own. I was worried about security and nervous about crime in the area......." Her three daughters continue - "We persauded her to try it, so she stayed in a 'homestay' apartment for a short while before making the village her permanent home. Mum is just so happy now. She's with lots of friends her own age and with the same interests".

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.
