No doubts any longer

We had to place my mother in law in the Rest Home facility at EH in September 2015. Her husband had died 22 months earlier and she had been living alone in another retirement village which did not cater for her ongoing needs. Although she had onset Alzheimers she was managing OK until several nasty falls which resulted in her not being able to return to her home. Deciding where she was to live was extremely stressful especially for my husband who is the only child. Dealing with the loss of his beloved Dad and then having to move his mum into rest home care was a double whammy. However we both have to admit this was the best thing we could have done for her. The place is home from home - beautifully kept, light, clean, airy and welcoming. The staff are amazing - they pay particular attention to each individual's needs, their desire/or not to participate in events (with gentle encouragement until they feel able to do so) and there are regular meetings for family members where you can discuss any concerns about your loved one. My mother in law is happily settled thanks to the wonderful staff who care for her. If you are in any doubt, go for a visit and have a look round - you will be pleasantly surprised I'm sure.

Description
Named after one of New Zealand’s greatest achievers, the Edmund Hillary Retirement Village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options for the elderly.

The village is situated on Abbotts Way, opposite the Remuera Golf Club, with panoramic views across One Tree Hill, Mt Hobson and Mt Eden.

The village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options along with the very best of resthome care from our friendly, caring staff.

The village features the latest designs in retirement living including architecturally designed Independent Townhouses & Apartments, Serviced Apartments and a Care Centre set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.

The village facilities are unprecedented in New Zealand, including an all-weather bowling green, petanque court, indoor heated swimming pool, spa, library, gymnasium, hair and beauty salon, shop, bar, internet cafe and so much more for residents to enjoy.

Location is everything with this village! Meadowbank, Eastridge and Remuera shopping malls are within easy reach, and the Eastern Suburb beaches are also close by.

Living at Edmund Hillary Retirement Village isn't about slowing down - it's about having time to do so much more!

We welcome your call.
