Description
This is the retirement lifestyle most of us dream about. A wonderful life in a desirable location.

A comfortable complex designed to provide residents with a secure and caring environment, set in relaxing landscaped grounds.

We offer lifestyle options that range from supporting your total independence through to a Care Home with hospital and rest home level care.

The village is located only a block away from the heart of the city. Restaurants, theatres, museums and galleries are all within walking distance of the village and the main shopping areas are all nearby.

VILLAS
A superb lifestyle! The independence you've always enjoyed, with the added advantages of some companionship and the knowledge that emergency care is immediately available if required.

SERVICED APARTMENTS
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.

This living option is for residents who wish to have partial or full rest home care yet maintain a level of independence in the privacy of their own apartment.

COMMUNITY CENTRE & LOUNGES
The focus of companionship, leisure and fun at the village is the Community Centre. Enjoyed by people daily. It includes the lounge, library, billards room,new cafe for meals and coffee, and swimming pool and spa, with a sunny conservatory area where residents can enjoy the winter sun.

The beautiful landscaped grounds provide a restful and attractive environment in which to enjoy.

You will find companionship, fun, laughter and a friendly warm community spirit.

What's New

The power to monitor your own health

To empower our residents to keep a handle on their health and seek help when there is a need we have introduced Ecare in our village. This electronic support system provides our residents, and their families, with the added peace of mind of knowing they can monitor and manage their health and wellbeing in their own time and in the comfort of their village.

Ecare is a self-monitoring digital health system which we encourage both our residents and village staff to monitor their own blood pressure, heart rate and weight on a regular basis using a simple touch screen. 


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.
