There are many reasons people give for moving into our retirement apartments or villas.

Some want to get away from the worry and cost of maintaining a large family home, others want the freedom to travel and enjoy life. Some retirees are looking for neighbourhood companionship and the security of knowing additional support is close at hand when it’s needed. Whatever your reason for looking into retirement living, we believe a move to an Enliven Central retirement village is one you won’t regret.

Support, security and peace of mind

At Enliven Central’s retirement villages you can go about your daily life just as you do now, but with the peace of mind that you’re in a safe and secure community where support is on hand if you need it.

We can arrange short or long-term healthcare assistance, practical home help, meals and house keeping services. These services are provided by Enliven on a ‘fee-for-service’ basis, although you may find that some of these services can be subsidised by your local District Health Board. Feel free to talk with us about the options available to you.

The social aspect

Retirement: it’s not about slowing down, it’s about having the time to do the things you enjoy most.

At an Enliven retirement village we take care of the hard work. You don’t have to worry about things like property maintenance and gardening, so you’re free to enjoy life and spend time with the people you care about. Of course, if you’re a bit of a ‘DIY’ fan or enjoy pottering in the garden, you’re welcome to take care of the area around your apartment. It’s up to you. It’s all about hassle-free living.

At Enliven retirement villages we’re sure you’ll enjoy being surrounded by a network of people at a similar stage in their lives. The Residents Committee at each village arrange social gatherings and trips, and many residents take part in the recreation activities and shared meals at our neighbouring rest homes.

Supporting future generations

When you choose an Enliven Central retirement village, you also choose to support future generations and strengthen our communities. That’s because Enliven Central is part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central. Any profits from selling the licence to occupy an Enliven Central retirement villa/apartment goes toward supporting social services for vulnerable children, families and older people. Many of our residents tell us it’s nice to know their money is supporting future generations of New Zealanders, rather than going into the pockets of shareholders.
