Complete comfort. Central location.
The Avenues offers superior apartment accommodation that allows for completely independent living, with care and support available should you ever need it. We are often told that our impressive apartments are more like a five-star hotel than a retirement village!
You have the choice of a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartment, all with access to 24-hour emergency care and a decking area overlooking our gardens. Some even offer magnificent views over Memorial Park to the Tauranga harbour.
The bigger apartments are great if you are having to make the transition from a big family home to an apartment. They are tastefully decorated in neutral colours so no matter what style your furniture is, it’s bound to fit right in!
Our apartments offer the independence you’ve always enjoyed with the added advantages of 24-hour security and companionship nearby.
While you remain responsible for your household tasks and meals, we take care of all the outdoor maintenance. If you would like more help, we offer a range of service and care packages delivered to you in your home.
The gold standard in care
In 2019, The Avenues opened a brand new 30 bed care home, adding to Metlifecare’s new gold standard in aged care in the Bay of Plenty. Offering both rest home and hospital level care, this boutique facility is a far cry from the traditional institutional model delivered in many care homes. Designed according to our award winning homestead model of care, our residents live in small groups of up to 15, with each group enjoying their own homely kitchen, dining room and lounge area. This friendlier layout creates a much more intimate and personalised environment and contributes greatly to residents’ quality of life. With shared spaces designed as an extension of the bedroom suites, you can entertain family and friends just as you would in your own home. It’s a home away from home!
Great care comes from great people
The quality of staff plays a crucial role in the quality of life care home residents enjoy. Here at The Avenues, care is delivered by a small but tight team who love what they do. They’re highly skilled and hugely committed, and that shows through in the consistent first-class nursing care they provide. Palliative care is another area of expertise – we’re known across The Bay for doing really good palliative care and it’s an area our team is extremely passionate about.
Life your way
The care we deliver is very resident directed. That means no strict schedules. You get to live life your way and make your own choices about the things that are important to you, like what you eat, when you wake up, and when you shower.
