Visitors as usual (but not if you’re unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Ultimate Care Bishop Selwyn is one of the largest Ultimate Care sites and offers a mixture of villas, studios and a range of care levels in our rest home and hospital. A day care programme also operates from Monday to Friday in our rest home. Our facility is well-established in the community where it has an excellent reputation for its care. Well situated, we are within a short distance of the city and local malls. We have a tranquil garden setting with many restful areas for friends and family to use. Our bird aviary attracts a lot of attention and is enjoyed by both residents and families.

The village features 8 x 1 bedroom villas, 21 x 2 bedroom villas (most with internal access garages) and 15 studios. Weekly outings and weekly shopping trips are organised for villa residents. Village residents are also able to join in other entertainment at the care facility.

"Ultimate Care Bishop Selwyn is a great place to be. The staff here are super friendly and extremely loyal, with more than half of them having worked here for more than 5 years. All of them are highly skilled and qualified and they genuinely love what they do. We're also rather proud of our comprehensive activities programme which caters for our range of residents. We also enjoy a fabulous connection to our sister village, UCG Rose Court, just round the corner, so our communities are well integrated and there is a genuine sense of belonging"
