Independent living with space, comfort and support
Choose from independent units and apartments, all architecturally designed, based on extensive research of overseas villages, but enhanced and adapted to the specific needs of New Zealanders. They consist of one or two bedroom units or apartments, built in modern construction materials including brick, aluminium joinery and tile roofing. The greatest care and detail has been taken in the design for safety, convenience and comfort.
Many residents continue their involvement in community activities outside the village, as well as joining in the many village activities. The villages also provide a safety net of support services for those who need them. Residents have absolute independence, while being able to enjoy village facilities at their leisure. Support is available if required.
Transform your unit or apartment into your home by adding your own individual style of furnishings and possessions to the interiors. Keen gardeners can show their personal flair in the gardens around their homes.
If you require assisted living options we also have a choice of beautiful serviced apartments. These are designed for people who value their independence but enjoy having easy access to additional care and support services.
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 apartments can provide the ideal answer
We can provide 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 residents are saying
I just want to say how impressed we have been with Longford Park Village in Takanini. My 91-year-old Dad has had a very difficult time [during Covid lockdown] with multiple health issues amongst other things. But the staff, from Reception, to Nurses, to the ever-cheery guys on the gate have all made the whole experience so much less stressful than it might otherwise have been. I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff.
Good afternoon. It has been great talking to each of the two callers who spoke to me recently on your catch up service. I commend them on their friendliness and willingness to chat to someone they had never met. Thank you for initiating this idea. I also wish to acknowledge the wonderful work our management and staff here at Longford Park Village for the way they are caring for us and making sure we are kept safe and happy. They are doing a wonderful job, from manager to office kitchen & medical staff down to the gardeners & maintenance men who are manning gate and ferrying deliveries.
