  • Greenwich Gardens - part of the metlifecare family of villages - is a brand new, contemporary retirement village in the centre on Auckland's North Shore. 

    Homes in this eco-friendly village are significantly warmer and energy efficient due to increased insulation, double glazing, energy efficient lights and appliances to name a few of its great features.

    Greenwich Gardens has a rich diversity of residents who call the village home - people who lead full and varied lives both within the village and outside it. Resident-lead activities, events and committees are a regular fixture on the social calendar.

    Our supported living apartments are opening July 2017. Floor plans for these apartments have just been released, for more information call Adelina on 09 444 4011.

    Opening June 2017 these supported living apartments provide the best in supported retirement living.

    A supported living apartment is a purpose-built one bedroom apartment with a kitchenette and bathroom offering continued independence with a package of support services that can help make day-to-day living a little easier. It's large enough for gatherings with friends and families yet small enough to easily maintain day-to-day.

    Coupled with a supported living apartment is its services package which includes things like daily meals, cleaning and laundry, removing the uncertainty out of some tasks that may have become a little harder to do. This package also takes care of your electricity, heating and water and you're welcome to add additional services if you would like to.
