Care Home
  • There’s no place quite like Somervale in Mount Maunganui. It’s a retirement oasis in the heart of the Mount where shared activities lead to new experiences and friendships. Set near the area’s largest shopping centre, Bayfair, the village is also close to churches, clubs and medical facilities. Somervale is a compact community with a homely atmosphere. Our position on an expanse of flat land surrounded by open space and gardens gives residents the chance to easily navigate their neighbourhood.  
    Accommodation at Somervale includes independent one and two-bedroom units, some with conservatory. Our brand new serviced apartments are designed for residents who value their independence, but want extra help with household chores and meals. All units are within easy walking distance to village facilities such as a bowling green, croquet lawn, games room, hairdressing salon, library, petanque terrain, restaurant, spa pool and swimming pool. Our social coordinator organises activities like mystery outings and beach strolls. 
    If you ever need greater daily support, Somervale offers a full continuum of care, with rest home and residential hospital care on-site. All residents enjoy a family friendly enviroment alongside the security of a 24-hour emergency call system in our new exciting Care Homewhich has been designed with groups of 11 to 12 resident rooms surrounding a shared kitchen, dining room and lounge, encouraging greater interaction between residents and a more homely environment.   
    Somervale is part of Metlifecare, one of the largest retirement village operators in New Zealand. All Metlifecare villages offer residents added assurances including fixed village fees, no hidden costs, no capital loss and continuum of care with priority access to any Metlifecare Care Facility.

    Your village fee will cease as soon as Metlifecare is provided with vacant possession of your unit.
