Retirement village developer & operator Summerset Group Holdings Ltd has bought an extra 2.1ha next to its Casebrook village in Christchurch.
Chief executive Julian Cook said yesterday the land on Cavendish Rd would provide for an additional 71 villas: “We are seeing strong enquiry for our Casebrook village, which is currently under construction, with the first homes available to move into in March next year.”
On completion, Summerset on Cavendish will now offer over 340 homes, including 2- & 3- bedroom villas and serviced apartments. It will also provide rest-home & hospital-level care and the company’s first memory care centre in Christchurch. This concept provides for people with dementia to have their own one-bedroom apartment complete, with living space & bathroom, in a secure environment.
“We were the first aged-care operator in New Zealand to launch this style of apartment living for those with dementia. Our first memory care centre opened in Levin last November. These centres provide residents with the dignity & respect of having their own home within a secure centre, purpose-designed for their needs.”
