Testimonials
Testimonials
When I decided four years ago that I needed to face reality and move from my home in Island Bay, I had no hesitation in choosing Village at the Park as the best place in which to retire. My husband Cliff had been a patient in the Dementia Hospital for eighteen months when the hospital was in its early stages of development, so it was just like coming home. I have never regretted this decision.

After living in Auckland for 30 years and still being a Wellingtonian at heart, I decided it was time to move back and be with my family.
I spent 3 months looking around and my son suggested we look at Village at the Park.
I was taken to the block of apartments and looked at 2 apartments, settling on the first one I looked at.
My furniture was in storage so it was a relief to unpack and move into my new apartment.
I was the first occupant of Block A and for 3 months was the only resident. The staff were very supportive, so I never felt lonely.
I have been here 6 years and have no regrets and I am very happy.
We now have a great Community Centre which is a meeting place for all sorts of activities.

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.
