Description
Powley is a place like no other - a garden sanctuary that at its heart has a wonderful, old-fashioned spirit.

Nestled amongst peaceful cottage gardens in the heart of Blockhouse Bay, Powley is remarked upon for its caring long-term staff, charming cottages and serviced apartments. It also has a tranquil chapel, all well loved by our residents and staff.

Situated on the inner slopes of the Manukau Harbour, close to major shopping centres and local clubs. The village is designed with your safety, convenience and comfort in mind. It is a smaller, more intimate village with a friendly, homely atmosphere.

The community centre is the hub of the village with many activities held there, it is a warm and welcoming place. The bus stop is nearby, taking residents to the City or Lynmall shopping centre. We also have a village bus, which regularly goes on shopping trips.

With a number of living options available, our independent living offers charming cottages and our continuum of care encompasses a residential hospital and rest home level care on-site.

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 is a community with real heart, come experience it for yourself.

For more information or a private tour, please call Helena on 09 826 2018.

Testimonials
“I had a few struggles downsizing my home but coming here has taken a real weight off my shoulders and the entire family, who really appreciate the fact that I’m in a safe environment and in such good hands. There’s also plenty to keep a guy like me busy – with various excursions to go on, organised activities, bbq’s and of course the popular Happy Hour every Friday.” - Bob Brown, serviced apartment 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.
