Why choose a retirement village in South and East Auckland?

The northern edge of this region takes in the eastern suburbs of Howick and Pakuranga, close to Auckland city. It stretches down through East Tamaki, Flat Bush and Manakau to Papakura and Karaka. Some of its suburbs are long-established, while others are newer, developed as Auckland outgrew its original suburbs and pushed out its boundaries. From all of this region, you’re in close proximity to all that Central Auckland has to offer in the way of amenities, activities and services, and West Auckland is an easy drive away as well.

Here you’ll find a range of retirement living options: mature and newer villages; independent living or villages offering a full range of care options; apartments, townhouse and villas. Some you may already know, or have visited friends living there, while others may be new to you. Our website makes them all accessible and easy to find.

What Retirement Villages have to offer

Thumbs up for Retirement Villages

A retirement village is a community specially built to cater for the needs and lifestyle of older people. Choosing to live in a retirement village can be a great option for those wanting to maintain their independence while living among a like-minded community of people.

Research shows most people enjoy a high level of satisfaction when living in a lifestyle or retirement village. For residents, the benefits can be numerous; these may include giving you peace of mind, new and varied activities and interests, new friendships, and time to be able to spend on the things you most enjoy.

Villages vary greatly – you’ll notice different-sized villages, from very few units to some with hundreds; different types of units within the same complex; newer villages and older villages. You will discover the community offering a wide range such as swimming pool, bowling green and café. Eligibility age differs across villages too – some villages may allow residents to enter at 55 while others commonly have an entry age between 65 and 75.

As well as providing a range of different accommodation options, many villages now offer alternatives, such as care suites, which combine village offerings and residential care components. Make sure you visit a village more than once before you make a decision, and if possible visit more than one village to get a feel for how each has its own culture.
