• Edith Cavell enjoys a prime spot in the costal Christchurch suburb of Sumner. The village is located just two blocks from the local beach, with its popular promenade, and is close to shops and cafes. A bus that goes to both the city and the airport stops right outside.

    Residents will find a wide range of independent living choices when it comes to accommodation at Edith Cavell. The village offers nine large studios and two one-bedroom apartments, each uniquely decorated with a full en-suite, built-in wardrobes and kitchenette. We also have seven two-bedroom townhouses, with e-suites, garage/workshops, and full kitchens. Laundry, housekeeping and meal services are available if desired. For your peace of mind, Edith Cavell has both an onsite rest home and hospital, with medical professionals on-hand around the clock.

    There’s also a wide range of activities to participate in if you choose. Every Friday, residents enjoy wine and nibbles with live entertainment, while manicure sessions, men’s sports afternoons, bingo, bowls and social outings are regulars in our calendar. A hairdresser visits weekly, and our extensive library is constantly rotated. Church services are also held in our lounge.

    Edith Cavell is part of Heritage Lifecare. For more information, please make an enquiry.
