Description
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.

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 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.

OUR MISSION
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:

CHARITY
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 recently partnered with Auckland Council to further build on our social housing goals in addition to our 57 rentals.

LEARNING
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.

COMMUNITY
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.

VILLAGES
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.

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.
