After Living in Temuka for 48yrs and the gardening & lawns becoming harder to cope with it was time to consider security for the future. We looked at other Villages around Timaru. McKenzie Lifestyle Village just felt right, it had so much more to offer.
The news that they were building new wings onto the adjacent McKenzie Healthcare Hospital was so important. At McKenzie Lifestyle Village there is so much to do, bowls, knitting group, craft, cards and much more. An excellent pool & spa at the Leisure Centre.
From the first day we visited the staff were great and very pleasant to deal with, always go out of their way to help.
On the social side there are many good functions, excellent bbqs. Lunch outings are always enjoyed.
To top it all off Geraldine is a great place to live. We just love living here and don't regret the day we moved. Mr & Mrs B

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.
