Choosing a Retirement Village in Auckland

As New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland offers every type of retirement living and you can feel spoiled for choice. However, the number and variety of living options can also make choosing a village challenging. Here are some tips that will help when you’re assessing your options:

Where do I start?

Whatever your idea of the perfect retirement lifestyle looks like, there is an option that’s just right for you. To help figure out if a village suits you, a great way to start is by visiting in person. Attend open days where you can get a feel for the community and check out the facilities and services. Bring people who care about you, talk to the expert staff about different options, and the residents who can tell you all about retirement village life. If you are looking on behalf of friends or family members, talk to our staff about the assisted living options and care available in the village.

Are there options to get a higher level of care it is ever needed?

There are many different types of accommodation at Summerset, from independent villas, and serviced apartments with care options through to rest home and hospital care (subject to availability). Ask us about the ability to have support when needed if health or circumstances change. Come and view the assisted living facilities and homes that support independent living through to personal and nursing care. Bring along family members or friends for a visit to an open day, or make an appointment for a personalised tour and get information from experts including costs and allowances of care.

Which village should I choose?

Auckland is a city of many landscapes, so your choice of retirement village can reflect the surroundings and lifestyle you enjoy. Whether you would like to be surrounded by lush countryside; a harbourside location; an oasis within the city; or would enjoy living in a country town, Summerset has many options in the Auckland region.

Does the village have recreational and social facilities you would use?

Staying active and having fun happen effortlessly when you have on-site recreational and social facilities. Summerset's Auckland retirement villages have a great range of facilities, including heated indoor swimming pools, bowling greens, communal vegetable gardens, barbecue areas, residents’ bars with piano, and exercise rooms — along with a wide selection of activities and events.

Does it feel right?

When you’re visiting villages, try to imagine how it suits your idea of your best retirement life and if it reflects the lifestyle and environment you’d most enjoy. You’re choosing a new place to call home, so it needs to feel right, and we recommend you visit a range of villages before deciding.

How do I find out more about a village?

You can request an information pack to be sent to you free of charge, where you'll also have the choice to opt in to be sent news and updates on events at the village. This is a great way to ensure you are kept informed while you continue your search for the retirement village that’s right for you.
