Independent retirement living at Selwyn Wilson Carlile Village, Hamilton.
Selwyn Wilson Carlile Village is owned by The Selwyn Foundation, one of New Zealand's leading charitable providers of quality services to older people. The Village offers independent retirement living accommodation, rest home and hospital-level care, as well as respite and day care - all set in beautifully kept grounds at 562 Grey Street, Hamilton.
We are on an attractive, level site not far from Memorial Park and the magnificent Waikato River. Located within 1.5kms of Hamilton East Shopping, medical centre and churches, there is also a pharmacy, café and convenience shopping within easy walking distance.
There are ten independent, traditional-style villas within the Village. They are of brick construction, have a warm appearance and are of generous proportions with one or two bedrooms. All have a garage or a carport.
The units are well integrated with the hospital and rest home, with easy access to all amenities on site.

THE SELWYN FOUNDATION GROUP – AN OVERVIEW and VISION STATEMENT
- The Selwyn Foundation has been around for a very long time.
Selwyn’s residents mirror New Zealand society as a whole, having people from all kinds of backgrounds, life experiences and interests. These days, people entering our retirement villages are older - now that people are living and remaining active for much longer.
Nevertheless, people residing in rest homes as well as those living independently, are encouraged to live as full a life as possible through maintaining existing links with community activities such as the RSA Club, local churches, Probus, U3A and sports clubs. Organised activities are on offer too – and managers are always interested in hearing of new ideas for activities, outings and social gatherings.
Today’s retirement villages are the culmination of over 50 years of progress. It was towards the late 1940s that the Anglican Church’s Auckland City Mission became very concerned about the plight of elderly people to cope in sometimes dilapidated houses, often too large for them once children had grown up and moved away.
The Mission had already done considerable work with older people by 1954 when the first 20 retired people became residents at Selwyn Village in Point Chevalier. This was the first rest home and retirement complex of its kind built in New Zealand. It still exists, although almost grown beyond recognition.
In 1967, the Mission arranged for the creation of The Selwyn Foundation as a separate charitable trust, specifically set up to look after this special concern for the needs of older people in our society.
Named after George Augustus Selwyn, first Anglican Bishop of New Zealand, the Foundation is an independent perpetual trust and not-for-profit organisation. Selwyn owns or manages retirement facilities in Northland, throughout greater Auckland and in the Waikato. It continues to grow and flourish - it is here to stay!
- Providing quality Christian care for the elderly.
The Selwyn Foundation Group invites you to take a closer look at our commitment to Christian values, quality care, accommodation and services, which continue to make us a leader in the provision of a wide range of accommodation and service options for the elderly in New Zealand.
It is committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of all residents through the ‘Selwyn Way’ wellness concept.
We place a high value on honesty and mutual respect. We strive to see our people fulfilled through the creation of work environments, where openness, communication, teamwork and safety are paramount. Our staff and volunteers share a specific interest in older adults, and undertake ongoing training in the particular needs of those in their care.
We strive to achieve excellence, continually seeking means for improvement and innovation in our care and services. Furthermore, we will, with integrity, adopt the highest standards of ethical behaviour in all our activities: care, legal, financial, environmental and all business practices.
