Care Home
  • Bishop Selwyn is located just a few minutes south of Christchurch city centre. The village is only a short drive from all the city has to offer, including Hagley Park and Golf Club, cafes, shops and community facilities.  

    You’ll find a variety of independent living options at Bishop Selwyn. Our well-established village offers eight one-bedroom villas, 21 two-bedroom villas, and 15 studio apartments. Most of our villas have internal access garages. These homes are set in a tranquil garden, which provides attractive areas for socialising with friends and family, or just sitting and enjoying the sun. Our bird aviary is equally popular with residents and visitors. Bishop Selwyn also provides a range of care, including palliative and day care, in our rest home and hospital facility.

    We’re proud of the comprehensive activities programme at the village, which provides something for everyone. The village also runs regular happy hours, social outings and shopping trips, along with other entertainment offerings.

    Bishop Selwyn is owned and operated by Ultimate Care Group. For more information, please make an enquiry.

    Friends and family are welcome to stay for a limited period with approval of the village manager.
