First residents move into Hikurangi Apartments12 November 2019
Pacific Coast Village’s Hikurangi Apartments have welcomed its first residents, with more due to move in over the next few months.
Many of the village residents have taken a tour of the newly completed apartments, with many expressing their delight at the beautiful interiors and convenient location to The Beach House, says Village Manager Carl Braddock.
The 36 one and two-bedroom serviced apartments provide an option for residents who would like some assistance with everyday domestic tasks such as cleaning and cooking. Assisted living packages start with a minimum service package and additional services can be supplemented as required to cater for residents’ changing needs.
The apartments have a modern, neutral décor, with the shared spaces including the communal dining room boasting a beachy Hamptons look. Included in the service packages are electricity, telephone and internet connection, housekeeping and rubbish collection.
Residents also have access to all the village facilities and activities, including The Beach House, which features the all-day Bloom Eatery and Lounge, The Grill à-la-carte restaurant, Beach House bar, activity room, movie theatre and hair salon, as well as a range of general activity areas.
Health Services Manager Janet Commins is responsible for the management of the Hikurangi Apartments, and will also oversee a residential care facility currently in the planning stages at the village that will provide rest home and hospital level care. A registered nurse, Janet has a long history of working with older people in both hospital and community-based care in community and village settings. She has been involved in many clinical community projects and management of facilities and villages.
