A wonderful place to call home

Both my parents spent the last five years of their lives at Windsorcare - my mother in the Special Care Unit, and eventually the Hospital Level care, and my father in a cottage in the Village, followed by Resthome and Hospital Level/palliative care. My father enjoyed his cottage, making many friends among other residents and staff. All the staff at Windsorcare, at all levels, were friendly, professional and devoted to the elderly in their care. They not only became a second family to my parents, who were treated with love, respect and dignity at all times, but also gave wonderful support to me and my family. Highly recommended!

WINDSORCARE Retirement Complex is situated in the heart of Shirley. Its prime location features plenty of space in the village and an easy transition to higher levels of care. The WINDSORCARE site is situated across the road from the Palms Mall, within walking distance to the Horseshoe Lake Recreation area and Shirley Golf Club. We are also 10 minutes by car to the city centre, 1 minute to the bus terminal at the mall to take you anywhere in Christchurch City and 8 minutes in the other direction to New Brighton Beach.

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.
