Description
Summerset in the River City is a well-established and respected community. You can be as busy or quiet as you choose – it’s up to you.

The village is located near Wanganui’s iconic river and is surrounded by beautiful gardens.

The village centre is the heart of Summerset in the River City. It is home to a range of wonderful facilities including the Divine Café, library, resident lounges and social spaces, and hair salon.

Our village offers a range of villas and apartments for independent living.

One of the benefits of living in a Summerset village is knowing that should your needs change, a range of care options are available. Our modern care centre offers rest home and hospital-level care within the village.

For singles and couples who wish to remain independent, we also offer support and care up to rest home level in our spacious serviced apartments.

Testimonials
"I find the Summerset Care apartment very comfortable. It is just like a home away from home. All your daily needs are there and you have security day and night. I find that a blessing. I enjoy the outings in the van. The trip to Cross Hills Rhododendron Gardens a little while ago was wonderful." Maria Limpus - Serviced Apartment resident.

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.
