Why choose us


What makes Summerset different

Summerset was founded on a deep respect for our residents, putting them at the heart of everything we do. With a range of homes and activities there’s something for everyone. When you move to a Summerset village, you’re not just moving house — you’re joining a community. And we think that’s pretty special.


At Summerset the choices are all yours. From the range of homes to the extensive activities and events on offer. Your pets are welcome after a quick check with the village manager and friends and family are welcome for short stays. We maintain your home so you are free to spend more time doing what you love.


Summerset villages are communities where you can make new friends and socialise with like-minded people, while also welcoming family and friends. Whether it is enjoying a coffee in the café, a drink at happy hour in the bar and lounge or tinkering in the resident’s workshop there is always a strong sense of community.

1 / 7


We are proud to have been operating villages since 1997 and have over 8,000 residents calling Summerset home. A call bell system is monitored on site 24/7 and security gates locked at night so you can always feel secure. With no hidden charges you have financial surety and our Summerset Sure guarantee means you'll have 90 days to be sure your independent living home or serviced apartment is right for you, and if not — we'll give you your money back (some conditions apply).


With a continuum of care you can rest assured that if your needs change, we have a range of care on offer. Our serviced apartments and rooms in our care centres and memory care centres, as well as residents’ priority right to transfer, are subject to availability and eligibility criteria. Care can be provided across our serviced apartments or in our care centres offering rest home and hospital level care. All villages are accredited dementia friendly and staff dementia trained, while our newer villages have state of the art memory care centres. You can also be reassured that residents have priority for transfer.
