Assisted living in a Serviced Apartment, Rest Home or Hospital
Even for the most able retiree, there comes a time when help is needed with the basics of day-to-day living. Family members often step in to provide support, however there is always a limit to how much time can be committed and the level of care they can provide.
This is where serviced apartment living at Palmerston North Village can provide the ideal answer. We offer a whole host of services, 24-hour support and a quality of life that you or your loved ones truly deserve. While you may be at a stage where you need a higher level of care, you can keep the spirit of independence, while your family can rest assured that you are always in safe hands and in good company.

What do our residents say?
“When Mum was still at home we’d have to spend time doing the vacuuming, the laundry and things like that. Now we come in, enjoy each other’s company and make the most of every moment we have together,” Daughter of our Serviced Apartment resident.

Care Home with rest home and hospital on-site
We advocate ‘resident directed care’ where the care is led by our resident’s choices with an emphasis on providing quality of life.
For a greater daily support we offer a full continuum of care with rest home and residential hospital level care on-site. A 38-bed care home including rest home and hospital, offering 24-hour care, provides a safe and comfortable environment. They are close to our other accommodations, so partners can visit easily.
Great care comes from great people.
