Independent Living at Metlifecare
The ideal choice for active retirees
At Metlifecare our independent living options give you absolute freedom each and every day.
You will enjoy all the home comforts and privacy of our well-designed villas, apartments and cottages. A big difference is we take care of time consuming chores like outdoor maintenance. We mow lawns, clear gutters and tend to gardens, leaving you with more time to enjoy the things you really love.
Think of it as moving from your old family home into a new low-maintenance home that provides you with a newfound freedom.
Even though our independent living options are designed for retirees who are active and able, help is always on-hand should you ever need it.
Our friendly staff can provide assistance with daily chores such as meals, cleaning and laundry, plus most villages have professional nursing staff who can assist you with many health related issues.
On top of all that youll love the security, support and social activities that come with living in a friendly village community.
Assisted Living & Care at Metlifecare
We offer various levels of care and support, depending on the village and your needs. Our aged-care assistance ranges from Serviced Apartments, Rest Home and Hospital options.
Assisted Living options, also commonly known as Supported Living, are designed for residents who require regular support with daily tasks. To cater to individual needs, this level of support can be varied from basic assistance with meals, laundry and cleaning, right through to residential hospital level care, depending on the village.
Everyone is treated with the utmost dignity and respect. With a choice of living options at many of our villages, you can stay close to your spouse or partner if your care needs are different.
Where general assistance is required, yet balanced with a bit more personal space for creature comforts from your own home, our low maintenance serviced apartment accommodation option is the ideal choice. Serviced apartments come in either a 1 bedroom or studio layout with kitchenettes. Each one is built to high standards, ensuring optimum comfort and security. 24-hour access to emergency care is within hand, so you and your family can feel confident your safety and wellbeing are provided for
Before moving into a serviced apartment, residents will sit down with the villages nurse manager to assess their needs and create an individual support programme that meets them now and into the future.
The level of support required also determines the accommodation choice that fits best.
