Why do retirees love independent living in Metlifecare villages?
Independent living at a Metlifecare village means you enjoy the same comfort, privacy and personal touches that you did previously, but we take care of chores like lawn-mowing, gutter cleaning and outdoor maintenance.
You can choose from a low-maintenance villa, apartment or cottage to suit your lifestyle and budget, whilst making the most of the communal and social spaces within the village – like pools, salons, workshops, and cafes – all the things that make village life come alive!
Is independent living at Metlifecare right for you?
- Are you interested in village life, but want your own space, privacy and independence?
- Are you active and able, but would like someone else to take care of some of the chores and maintenance so you can spend more time doing what you enjoy?
- Would you enjoy a community of like-minded people as your neighbours?
- Do you want the security of knowing help is at hand if you need it?
What if I need more care at some stage?
If you’re living independently, our friendly staff can still provide assistance with daily chores such as meals, cleaning and laundry, plus most villages have professional nursing staff who can assist with health-related issues. We also welcome DHB provided home help or the cleaner of your choice.
If you realise you need more assistance at some stage, there’s no charge for moving from independent living to assisted living, and we’ll do everything we can to help make your transition as easy as possible.
