Description
At Palms Lifecare, we believe in providing personable, compassionate, safe, respectful care, adding value to the quality of everyday living. Set in beautiful park-like grounds, Palms Village is set to become a welcoming, modern retirement village offering you independence, community and security. Village living could be the ticket to feeling safe, being free to create moments with family and friends or simply doing more of what you love. The Village's close proximity to Pukekohe township provides many opportunities to access facilities and attend social activities and outings.

We know it is very important to offer choices and to really listen to what our residents and their families want. Recognising the individual needs of our residents and to promote a friendly and comfortable environment is an important part of our philosophy. Respecting the dignity, beliefs and culture of all helps us make each day the best it can be.

Our residents and their families comment on the homely feeling we have created here. We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Gina Stephenson, our Village Coordinator on 09 237 3857, or feel free to drop in at any time.

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.
