Selwyn St Andrew's retirement village, owned by the Selwyn Foundation (a New Zealand charitable trust providing services to older people and their families), offers independent living by way of 51 delightful one, two and three bedroom villas and 11, one and two bedroom apartments situated in the heart of Cambridge.

English-style Cambridge is a highly desirable retirement area for people from throughout the Waikato, due to its relaxed lifestyle, lush beauty and wonderful shopping and cafés. Nestled adjacent to the centre of the town is Selwyn St Andrew's, the most centrally located retirement village in Cambridge.

The retirement village has generous grounds of around two hectares and is adjacent to the picturesque and historic St Andrew's Church. This wonderful location offers easy access by foot or vehicle to main street shopping, medical centres, banks, supermarkets, churches and community facilities.

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.

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.

The Moxon Centre is now open with community facilities available to all residents and includes 11 one, two and three bedroom independent living apartments situated on the top floor of the Moxon Centre. The Moxon Centre apartments are completely self-contained and most offer the following as standard:
• Drapes and sun filter curtains
• 100% wool carpet
• Electric glass hob
• Electric wall oven
• Fridge/freezer
• Range hood
• Single dishdrawer
• Laundry tub, washing machine and dryer
• Non-slip tiled deck/ balcony
• Pre-wired for UHF, SKY TV, phone and internet capability

In addition, the following safety and security features will be in place:

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.

Details of the above and other aspects are contained in our Disclosure Statement which can be obtained on request. Call in - or contact our Office Staff at Selwyn St Andrew’s on (07) 827 6225.

The Selwyn Foundation has been around for a very long time.

The Selwyn Foundation is an independent, faith-based New Zealand charitable trust 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 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 charitable focus is three-pronged: to combat social isolation and loneliness,
increase social housing and offer hardship support. In all that we do, we do not lose
sight of the importance of Tikanga and our Christian faith.

Our activities are grouped in four key areas:.

Enhancing the lives of elders who are vulnerable or in need.
Promoting the welfare of elders in general is an important aspect of the Foundation’s charitable Mission. We therefore distribute more than 30% of our annual operating surplus to charitable and not-for-profit groups working with or for the elderly at both community and national level. This is in addition to funding our community outreach Selwyn Centre programme, our subsidised rental accommodation and village medical centres.

Looking to the future, our charitable focus will be to deliver on our mission in combating
social isolation and loneliness, increase social housing and offer hardship support.

Investing in research and education to deliver quality care.
The Selwyn Foundation supports a wide range of gerontology research. In addition to assisting universities with studies that influence the wellbeing of elders, we also fund The Selwyn Institute for Ageing and Spirituality and are the principal benefactor of The HOPE Foundation. By investing in quality learning and research opportunities, we aim to
enhance the wellbeing of our residents, and of New Zealand’s ageing population as a whole.

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.
Selwyn’s community outreach is most evident in the Selwyn Centres. With 39 venues provided in association with Anglican parishes and serving more than 800 people each week, the programme provides community drop-in centres that enable those who may be living alone and in need of companionship to remain active, healthy and independent in their own neighbourhoods.

Creating thriving communities to age well.
The Selwyn Foundation seeks to create positive environments that promote residents’ independence, eliminate loneliness and add variety to the daily experience. We aim to create open, engaging communities where people have purpose, enjoy choice, and an active lifestyle with family and friends. By developing contemporary new environments and modernised styles of care, we’ll take forward into the future the vision our founders began over sixty years ago.

The Selwyn Foundation recently opened its new $14 million Moxon Centre at Selwyn St Andrew’s retirement village.

The three-storey centre offers fully serviced residential aged care suites within an innovative ‘household’ setting, as well as an extensive range of leisure amenities and eleven new independent living apartments.

The Selwyn Foundation Chief Executive, Garry Smith says: “We’re extremely proud to be opening this wonderful development at our Selwyn St Andrew’s village. The Moxon Centre will provide our residents with on-site residential care services for the first time ever, meaning they won’t need to move out of the village if their health or support needs change over time. It also offers exciting new social facilities for all our residents to enjoy and – new for Cambridge – retirement living in stylish, top floor apartments. click below for a virtual tour of one of the available apartments.

Selwyn St Andrews - Apartment 208

“As New Zealand society ages and the health sector comes under increasing strain to meet the care needs of growing numbers of older people, this outstanding new facility – offering two households, each with 12 care suites – also represents an additional service option for the wider Cambridge community and increases the range of care choices that are available to older people and their families in the area.”

The care suites in the Moxon Centre have been developed according to the ‘household’ layout, which is a new concept in the provision of residential aged care in New Zealand and based on international best practice. By having two small communities or ‘households’ of twelve residents, the care suites will provide an environment where people who live there have a real sense of belonging and feel truly at home.

Each ‘household’ will function like a home, where residents will have their own room with ensuite, and share a spacious lounge with open-plan dining and kitchen area, leading to a large outdoor deck and seating. Click below to view a virtual tour of household one.

Selwyn St Andrews - Level 1 - Household 1

Village Manager, Rachael Hall, says: “The layout is designed to support our new way of delivering care. Our unique ‘care partnership’ approach provides holistic care planning focussed on all aspects of a person’s wellbeing. The interior plan and the accessibility features promote people’s independence, and a new way of working for our staff reflects the importance we place on the whole person and their overall wellbeing, and will enable residents to continue to take charge of their own lives, be empowered and heard by all their care partners.”

With the opening of the Moxon Centre, The Selwyn Foundation is the first provider in New Zealand to offer a new participatory style of hospital-level care – one that’s based totally around residents’ individual needs and what they want out of life.

“We’ve developed this following a review of the most innovative thinking in residential aged care provision and service delivery, and then created our own unique version. In the Selwyn model, our residents direct us on what’s important for them, with our care team then formulating a personal and tailored care plan based on the person’s individual needs and what they want out of life. The care team has a guiding role and will support the resident to make the best decisions about their own wellbeing and lifestyle within the care home,” Rachael says.

The care suites are located on the second floor of the Moxon Centre, which also comprises a social hub on the ground floor with a range of community leisure and social facilities including a café and dining area, outdoor BBQ, lounge, activity rooms, residents’ shop and hair salon. Eleven one, two and three-bedroom independent living apartments are located on the top floor. Click below for a virtual tour of the community areas: 

Selwyn St Andrews - Moxon Centre

The Moxon Centre development has created 25 new jobs for the local community and is part of a broader $50 million investment programme that The Selwyn Foundation is undertaking, with new residential care centres also being developed at Selwyn Village and Selwyn Oaks in Auckland.

The Centre is named in recognition of Archbishop Emeritus Sir David Moxon KNZM, former Anglican Bishop of Waikato and former Primate and Archbishop of the New Zealand Dioceses of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.


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.
