Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

We provide a happy, warm and homely environment. We support people in our community to make the most of their abilities and where possible, encourage them to grow and enjoy as much independence as they can.

Our goal is to provide you with a private and comfortable home, where you can welcome friends, family/whanau and other visitors. We know each person has different needs, aspirations, values and customs. We will nurture your individuality, respect and encourage your independence and help you to lead a full life.

We have a team that brings with them many skills and life experiences that enable them to contribute in a positive way to your daily life. Our staff are required to continue to develop the knowledge, skills and insights necessary to deliver world-class care, support and services.

Our Vision

To provide a home where people live in dignity within an environment that supports independence and respects people’s cultural, spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical wellbeing.



A very warm welcome to you and your family.

Your wellbeing is our number one priority, which is why we’re excited to present Christchurch’s newest retirement community offering luxurious accommodation with exceptional care.

As Christchurch locals with two decades of experience in the aged care industry, we are strongly committed to the future wellbeing of our city and our people. Following the Canterbury earthquakes, we saw a need for a high quality, safe and welcoming retirement village in the north-east. We feel truly proud and privileged to bring you The Village Palms, which represents a major investment in the revitalisation of Christchurch’s eastern suburbs.

Our compassionate, fun loving and professional team of staff provides a seamless continuum of care tailored to meet your needs. Our spacious quality accommodation options, excellent onsite facilities and social activities work in harmony to create a welcoming and fun environment.

History and heritage matter to us, just as they matter to you. You come to us with a lifetime of experiences and relationships, which will be cherished and respected. We look forward to meeting you at The Village Palms.

Building & Safety

Building & Safety

Safe and Sound and Engineered for the future

The Village Palms is a contemporary retirement village in Christchurch’s North Eastern suburbs. Extensive planning by experienced retirement village operators went into the development of The Village Palms.

Structural integrity and design is best practice. The land on which The Village Palms was developed was remediated by a technique known as deep soil mixing. This remediation ensures the land is now robust enough to withstand any further seismic activity and exceeds the National Building Standard for seismic safety.

Architecturally stunning with private garden courtyards and views of beautifully landscaped grounds, the two-storey building includes a mix of care wings and ground floor serviced apartments with central heating, reticulated fresh air, ensuites with underfloor heating and 24-hour emergency call buttons.

Architectural design by Mark Barron of award-winning and NZIA registered Jerram Tocker Barron Architects and construction completed by Christchurch-based commercial and residential builders Jones and Wyatt Construction.

Your safety and comfort are assured at The Village Palms.
