SELWYN VILLAGE
From every angle, choosing independent retirement living at Selwyn Village makes perfect sense. You forgo the worries of security and home maintenance, so you have more time to enjoy life. There’s the unique natural setting of the village, the wealth of amenities and the new friends to share them with. Add to these the peace of mind knowing there’s on-site residential care, should the need eventuate, and the knowledge you’ll always have the enduring Christian commitment of The Selwyn Foundation behind you.

Selwyn Village is a 26 acre retirement jewel sitting on Auckland’s sparkling Waitemata Harbour. Located in desirable Point Chevalier, Selwyn Village provides a fantastic lifestyle in a historic setting. A palm-lined avenue, park-like grounds, well-tended flowerbeds and pretty shrubs complement the garden environment, and coastal walks lead to a sheltered swimming beach.

Close to the central city, but away from busy roads, the village offers maximum sun and privacy with magnificent harbour views.

LIVE LIFE AT YOUR OWN PACE
With many of your everyday tasks such as gardening and exterior maintenance taken care of, you’ll have time to indulge in an active, relaxed lifestyle and to make the most of the wide range of leisure facilities close at hand. You may wish to join in the activities on site and play a full part in village life, socialising in a friendly community of likeminded people. There will be plenty to keep you busy, with outings and entertainment also arranged for your enjoyment.

Or you can relax and take things easy, living privately and independently in your own home – secure in the knowledge that everything’s available on your doorstep, as and when you require. Of course, your family and friends will always be welcome to visit.

At Selwyn Village, you have the choice of an active lifestyle or a quiet life, companionship or privacy, with everything provided for you within a safe, secure and supportive environment.

THE SELWYN FOUNDATION

Selwyn Village is owned and managed by The Selwyn Foundation, an independent, faith-based New Zealand registered charity providing services to older people and their families. The Foundation has been leading the way in improving the quality of life of seniors since 1954. As pioneers of the retirement village model and of residential aged care in this country, we are uniquely experienced in providing care, independent retirement living and community outreach services for older adults.

Our Mission is: 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. As a result of the ageing of New Zealand's population and the growing numbers of seniors who are vulnerable or in need, our work is more important than ever. With our charitable Mission as our foremost strategic objective, the Foundation is focused on providing charitable support and outreach where there is hardship amongst seniors who live in the wider community – whether that be loneliness and social isolation, material/financial/emotional- or housing-related.

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.
