123 Stanley Road,
Relax in the simple life.
Laid back, and with a tight-knit community, The Orchards retirement village is built on the site of an old citrus orchard, and rises gracefully along the North Shore’s green belt.
Come and see it yourself
Once home to a thriving orchard, this beautiful site is blessed with stunning grounds, lush gardens, and communal vegetable plots. Add to that the sound of birdsong from neighbouring Kaipatiki Scenic Reserve, and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in a rural wonderland, though we’re conveniently located in the heart of Glenfield. Take a tour and see for yourself why our residents love the lifestyle at The Orchards.Book a tour

Assisted Living at THE ORCHARDS
Assisted Living options, also commonly known as Supported Living, are designed for residents who require regular support with daily tasks. In addition to independent living options, we can offer a full continuum of care, with rest home and residential hospital level care on-site.
Aged care with a difference
The Orchards offers a wide range of care options, with rest home and hospital level care on-site as well as respite care, day care, and the highest quality palliative care.
Strong advocates of resident-directed care, we strive to meet the unique and evolving needs of each resident. Our work is shaped by our residents’ choices and we collaborate closely with residents and their families to provide an environment that actively champions independence, freedom and quality of life.
Respectful and compassionate
When you need full time care, it’s important to know you are in the best possible hands, and we pride ourselves on the quality of our staff. Our nurse manager and team of registered nurses and trained caregivers are dedicated to making a positive difference to the lives of our residents. They’re professional, highly skilled, and they love what they do.
But this passion for helping people live their best lives extends beyond the medical care we offer. It can also be found in the delicious meals we serve and the engaging activities we provide. The Orchards care home is a place where you can make the most of each day and enjoy a level of care that will give you a new lease on life.
We believe that everybody deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. To us that means providing individualised services and care, delivered with a giant dollop of kindness and compassion.
