TO CARE FOR OLDER PEOPLE, YOU HAVE TO CARE ABOUT THEM
The Selwyn Way is our approach to the care and wellbeing of all who connect with The Selwyn Foundation. Whether you live at home in your community, or in one of our independent living or residential care facilities, or if you work for the Foundation, you will find the same consistent standard of care, underpinned by our Christian faith.
OCCUPATION RIGHT AGREEMENT
The ‘Agreement’ allows for the occupancy of a villa or apartment for as long as it may be needed. However occupants do not purchase the land on which the dwelling stands. The ORAs are secured by a first charge encumbrance granted in favour of the statutory supervisor (Covenant Trustee Company Ltd).
Residents have the support of The Selwyn Foundation in terms of governance, management and administration.
Our Villas have one, two and three bedrooms each with a well appointed kitchen, dining and lounge area – and some with their own garages or carports. There are carport blocks available for some dwellings also.
They feature wheelchair accessible showers with non-slip floors and safety rails. All are equipped with security doors. There is security lighting throughout the Village.

Selwyn St Andrew’s is responsible for exterior maintenance - i.e., painting, repairs to the roof and guttering, etc and is also to maintain the lawns, driveways, footpaths and common garden areas. Residents are responsible for internal maintenance, and for care of their own garden, should they choose to cultivate one.
A monthly service fee is levied on each dwelling to cover compliance costs, maintenance costs, insurance on dwellings, street lighting, rates and other related costs such as refuse removal. The service fee also includes a contribution to a sinking fund which is used to pay for long-term external maintenance of the dwellings and infrastructure.
The entry price of the dwelling is determined by the Village. A percentage of this price is retained by the Village upon termination of the ‘Agreement’ and this varies according to the length of time the dwelling has been occupied.

THE SELWYN FOUNDATION – AN OVERVIEW and OUR MISSION
The Selwyn Foundation has been around for a very long time.
The Selwyn Foundation is an independent, faith-based New Zealand registered charity providing services to older people and their families. We have been leading the way in improving the quality of life of our elders for over sixty five years. As pioneers of the retirement village model and of rest home care in this country, we are uniquely experienced in providing residential care, independent retirement living and community outreach services for older adults.
With the dramatic rise of New Zealand's ageing population, the work of The Selwyn Foundation is more important than ever. Building on our achievements to date — and in keeping with our original Mission to provide quality care for elders — we will continue to innovate, diversify and offer a continuum of flexible care options that meet the present and future needs of ageing people and their families.
In keeping with our mission:
To deliver quality services that are responsive to the ageing person and their family, ensuring that our charitable outreach supports those who are vulnerable or in need.
Our activities are grouped in four key areas:
Enhancing the lives of elders who are vulnerable or in need.
To support our mission we reappraised our definition of 'vulnerability' and developed new, practical ideas on how our charitable mission could affect the quality of life of older people. We identified three particular areas where our help can make a substantial difference to those in need:
• Social isolation/loneliness
• Affordable housing
• Hardship support
These priorities are funded through surpluses derived from the various Selwyn villages, community services and educational functions, and through fundraising, donations, bequests, and sponsorship initiatives and in the future surpluses from commercial partnerships. We have partnered with Auckland Council to further build on our affordable housing goals in addition to our 81 rentals.
Investing in research and education to deliver quality care.
The Selwyn Institute takes a holistic approach to the wellbeing of older people and helps inform our charitable and business functions through knowledge-sharing, research, trials, innovations, and technology development.
The Selwyn Foundation is committed to opening up growth and skill opportunities that help our staff, their families and our residents.
Providing care and support to elders in their community.
Recognising that village life is not for everyone, The Selwyn Foundation is expanding its care and services to those who choose to remain living in their communities. Helping older people to remain connected through our Selwyn Centres, providing cost effective transport, health and fitness programmes, and providing products and services that they both need and want. All of this delivered through The Selwyn Way – our approach to care.
Creating thriving communities to age well.
We continue to build thriving communities, mindful of the potential need for continuum of care. With the development of The Selwyn Way, our approach to care, so too we have developed purpose-built residential care housing that allows us to provide residents with a more homely environment where they can find meaning and self-fulfilment.
