Description
Have the freedom to choose your retirement.

Hillsborough Heights is a friendly, caring retirement village situated on beautifully landscaped gardens in the suburb of Mount Roskill, offering panoramic 360 degree views over Auckland.

Residents have the choice of living in either one of 176 independent residential units, or one of 42 serviced apartments - which offer independent living with a tailored support package. Delicious lunches and dinners are served by the chef in the village’s own restaurant. All units and apartments provide residents with private, comfortable living and the peace of mind that comes with knowing that 24-hour emergency help is available at the touch of a button using the emergency call system installed in all units.

If life at home is a struggle for you or your loved ones, our serviced apartments provide the perfect balance between independence, companionship and support. Call us today to see how we can tailor a package just for you. Our services can include meals, laundry, cleaning, showering, medication management and more.

"When Mum was still at home we'd have to spend time doing the vacuuming, the laundry and things like that. Now we come in, enjoy each other's company and make the most of every moment we have together," says daughter of a Serviced Apartment resident.

“I love the outlook. During the day the sun shines right in and when it’s warmer I can open the doors up and enjoy the courtyard. It’s smaller than my unit back in Hamilton, but it’s all I really need. I did cull a few things, but I’ve kept my favourite pieces and just love my home,” says Lois.

Comfy apartment aside, Lois is a huge fan of all the daily activities at the village. “We have two every day – one at 10.30 in the morning and the second after lunch at 1.30. Some days we have manicures which are a treat. Or we might go on an excursion in the village minibus – our last one was a drive out to Clevedon for lunch. But I must say my favourites are the quizzes – we have some wonderful questions and I love the challenge of trying to work out the answers.”

Which is probably not surprising considering Lois is still as sharp as a tack. In fact she’s come up with a number of her own inventions over the years, including an early version of a suitcase with wheels. Something she created and patented while she was working with Pan American Airways during the 1970s.

For many residents it’s this social side of village living that gives them a new lease of life and Lois is no exception.

“There’s a good bunch of people here. I’m great mates with a group of boys who like to congregate in the lounge, they are real characters and I have a lovely time with them, lots and lots of laughs. Plus my daughter comes and sees me every week which is fantastic.”

“I feel a lot of people leave it too late to make a move like this. I wanted to come in when I could still enjoy my life and that is just what I’m doing,”

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.
