New Zealand’s Retirement Village
and Care Home Directory
This generally refers to a villa, townhouse, apartment or studio that comes without personal services (although they may be available to purchase separately.) Residents enjoy maximum privacy and freedom in their own home, but with the security and companionship that comes with village life.
Independent living options are often designed to help people live alone for as long as possible €€€ with ergonomic fittings, extra-wide doorways for wheelchairs, or without difficult stairs. Most independent living units will feature an emergency alarm system, so residents can summon help if needed.
Most villages also provide maintenance services to their independent living residents, such as lawn mowing, gutter clearing and window cleaning.
