The Village (Independent Retirement Living)
People who live here are able to enjoy:
► The company of a kind and friendly group of residents- there are 60 villas in total, so someone is always about to have a cuppa and a chat with.
► An activities programme organised by four activities staff
► The convenience of having many everyday chores- like lawns, gardens and general maintenance- taken care of for them.
Should a person need extra support, they can transfer their existing home care (domiciliary care) from home to their villa. In addition, there is a village nurse who can visit on a rota or as required. Plus, each villa has a nurse call alarm system to use in the event of an accident or emergency.
And should your health needs change, Melrose has an aged care facility with 39 rest home beds and 57 hospital beds and a contract with the Bay of Plenty DHB to provide these services.
We also offer:
1. For an additional fee, meals from our kitchen (though each villa has its own kitchen)
2. A weekly shopping trip in the village bus
3. Games rooms, lounges and a library
4. A monthly newsletter, "The Melrose Tribune", produced by staff and residents
5. Lovely views over the harbour and out towards "The Mount"
