Summerset wins gold

Summerset was proud to win gold for “Group Provider Nationwide” in Aged Advisor’s 2023 people’s choice annual awards.

The most pleasing part of the win was the fact that the awards are voted on by retirement village residents and their families from around the country.

One resident said, “I vote every year for our village as I genuinely believe it is the best.” With another saying, “I just love my life living in this village, best decision I ever made.”

Summerset CEO, Scott Scoullar, said “This is a terrific achievement and one we should take pride in, particularly as it is voted for by our residents. We have more than 2,500 staff whose goal it is to bring the best of life to our residents and ensure they love living in our villages.

“We are committed to nurturing relationships, delivering exceptional experiences, and embracing innovation to provide the best experience for our residents, and it’s very pleasing our hard work has been recognised by them and they’ve voted for us.”

In addition to the Group Provider Gold award, five Summerset villages were named finalists for the Best Retirement Village award. These are Canterbury-based Summerset on Cavendish, Summerset Prebbleton and Summerset at Wigram, Wanganui’s Summerset in the River City, and Summerset in the Orchard in Hawke’s Bay.

We firmly believe that retirement should be a time of relaxation, enjoyment, and pursuing long-held desires, so we have a range of fantastic facilities that residents love. We offer a variety of homes to suit all needs and tastes, and residents can opt for assistance if needed. Care centres are available in most of our villages, providing rest home level care or hospital care as circumstances change. With a 24-hour on-site team, residents can enjoy security and peace of mind.

Staying active is made easy with facilities such as swimming pools, recreation bowling greens and gyms on site. A full calendar of organised activities and social events caters to all interests and there are plenty of teams and clubs to join for those who would like to keep up a hobby or learn a new one.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for Summerset.
