At Summerset, we partner with a number of organisations to bring the best of life to more than 5,000 New Zealanders around the country.

 Organisations we work with 

Summerset is a member of the Retirement Villages Association of New Zealand.  This gives you the assurance that our practices and processes are in accordance with the law and we've committed to providing the highest levels of service to our residents. 

All retirement villages are required to have a statutory supervisor and we have chosen Public Trust for its proven ability to represent our residents' interests

Summerset was the first New Zealand retirement village group to receive the Lifemark - an assurance that your home will be right for your stage of life. 

In 2018, we were certified as the first village in New Zealand to become fully Lifemark certified for every facility in all our villages. The certification process took over two years and included a robust independent audit process and retrospective remedial programme so our facilities meet the standards. Every new village hereafter will be independently audited by Lifemark ensuring our villages are useable and safe for our residents.

Summerset is a longstanding member of the New Zealand Aged Care Association and is committed to providing high quality long-term and short-term residential care.

In 2017, Summerset by the Ranges memory care centre, for people living with dementia, won the Aged Care Association’s Built and Grown Environment Award, which highlights exceptional design in the aged care sector.

All our serviced apartments and care centres are regularly audited and certified by the New Zealand Ministry of Health.

We work with Careerforce to support any unqualified caregivers to complete a National Certificate in Foundations Skills (Level 2) during their first year with us.  Most of our caregivers are already qualified in some way, many choosing to further their education and become nurses.

As an NZX50 company, Summerset has a strong capital base.  This enables us to continue developing the business, while maintaining the high standard of facilities and operations that our residents expect.
