Howick’s only boutique retirement village, HBH Senior Living, has two, 2-bedroom apartments available for sale at 139 Union Road, Howick. Well-positioned, both apartments enjoy an open plan living space that flows to a modern kitchen with quality appliances and ample storage. The master bedroom has easy access to a well-designed disability-friendly bathroom. Situated on the top floor, both apartments have a balcony and enjoy the afternoon sun. 139 on Union offers a close community of 42 apartments with an emphasis on friendship, care and support. With Rest Home and Hospital level care and a Day Programme on site you can have the best of both worlds: the freedom to live independently and the reassurance that help is on hand should you need it.

If you are privately paying your admission agreement should cover these circumstances and the costs should be identified there. It may allow for a lesser payment over this time. If you are a subsidised resident the two circumstances are treated differently. If you are in hospital you can be absent for 21 days per financial year (1 July - 30 June).
