At Metlifecare we offer outstanding independent living in 3 outstanding West Auckland locations including Green Bay, Blockhouse Bay and Titirangi. Here we have a choice of retirement options to suit your individual needs.

To see any one of these villages, please call Karen or Denise to arrange an appointment at a time that suits you. Living options available: Villas & Townhouses Spacious, modern living options complete with their own gardens and outdoor areas. Apartments Quality independent living with all the convenience of an apartment lifestyle. Serviced Apartments Independent living with professional care and support services close at hand. We all know the saying theres no place like home. Well as our loved ones get older this still rings true. They want to stay in the comfort of their own home and they want their independence! Even for the most able retiree, there comes a time when help is needed with the basics of day-to-day living. More often than not, this help comes from family members who live close by and can assist when they can. Despite this support, realistically, there is a limit to how much time a family can commit, especially as the needs of a loved one increase. Sometimes we reach this point without warning, in the case of a sudden health issue or a spouse passing away. Other times it happens slowly and over time we start to notice the small things Mum and Dad are struggling with. Maybe the gardens are getting overgrown, when once they were immaculate. Household chores like cleaning are being overlooked. Or Mum and Dad are not cooking proper meals like they used to and in some cases theyre skipping meals all together. Physically your loved ones may also be nding it harder to get around, especially if they have stairs or slopes to negotiate. For a person at this stage of life there are various options. While residential aged care is considered an alternative, this type of care may not always be the best t for those who want to stay independent, but need the extra support. In this case, Serviced Apartments provide the perfect answer. In West Auckland, retirement lifestyle village operator Metlifecare has three villages that offer this Serviced Apartment style of living - Crestwood village sits alongside Titirangi Golf Course in Green Bay, Powley village has a tranquil setting in Blockhouse Bay, and Pinesong village in Titirangi sits on 8 lush hectares overlooking the Manukau Harbour. With Serviced Apartment packages including a range of support services you can be assured that your Mum and Dad are being well looked after. These packages may include services such as breakfasts, mid-day meals, evening meals, weekly laundering of bed linen and towels, a weekly clean of the apartment, daily removal of rubbish and a laundry service. On top of that residents love being part of a vibrant community where there are plenty of social and recreational activities to take part in. Serviced Apartments at Metlifecare really do offer the best of both worlds. Loved ones can have the independence they treasure combined with peace of mind knowing help is always at hand. Plus because many of lifes chores are taken care of, they end up having more time to enjoy the things they really love. As well as that, the whole family knows that Mum or Dad are in safe hands. To nd out more about Metlifecare villages and its services please call one of our Sales Executives to arrange an appointment at a time that suits you.
