Expansion of Summerset on Cavendish development
13 November 2017
We're excited to announce that Summerset has purchased an additional 2.1 hectares of land adjacent to our Summerset on Cavendish development in Casebrook, Christchurch. This will allow for an additional 71 villas to be added to the village.
Our CEO, Julian Cook, says “There's a huge amount of interest in our Casebrook village, which is currently under construction, and we're thrilled that the the first homes will be available to move into in March next year.:
Following the purchase of additional land, once complete, the village will offer over 340 homes, including two and three bedroom villas and serviced apartments. There will also be rest-home and hospital level care as well as our first Memory Care Centre in Christchurch.
Summerset’s innovative, award winning memory care concept means people living with dementia have their own one bedroom apartment complete with living space and bathroom in a secure environment.
“We were the first aged care operator in New Zealand to launch this style of apartment living for those with dementia.” Mr Cook said. “These centres provide residents with the dignity and respect of having their own home within a secure centre, purpose designed for their needs. Needless to say, we're very proud of them.”
