Abbeyfield Ellesmere

Construction is now underway for a 14 resident house in Flannery Street in Leeston



Lifestyle at Abbeyfield in Leeston

We will provide a peaceful, friendly atmosphere where residents will live with independence, companionship and security in a family style environment. It’s going to be your home within a home with support when you need it from our professional and caring house staff and volunteers.

Type of accommodation

We will offer affordable, high quality living for people who want to be as self-reliant as possible without the worry of maintaining their own home so that you can enjoy peace of mind.
  

Eligibility

We make no capital charge

Any single or widowed person over 65 years of age who is able to care for their personal needs independently may be considered for residency.

Even if you have limited assets, if you meet the criteria for a Housing Accommodation Supplement or living alone allowance, the weekly charge will be affordable. Those with modest incomes or savings are also eligible for consideration as residents.  

About this property

 An on-site house keeper will ensure that the house in Flannery Street is warm, comfortable and safe and that the daily meals provided are varied, nutritious and enjoyable.

All studios will be ensuite and unfurnished, so you can bring your own furniture, making it a home from home. The house has been specifically designed for us. It will be very accessible as it is level throughout, suitable for wheelchair and walker frame users.

Abbeyfield house management

The property will be managed by Vintage Village Trust t/a Abbeyfield Ellesmere,  a registered NZ Charity (CC47915). The volunteer, non-profit management contributes to our ability to provide quality accommodation at an affordable cost. Residents have a say in day to day matters.
