Life is never dull at Elmswood Retirement Village, unless of course you want a quiet day.
There are always people to chat with and there is always plenty to do.

Everyday life revolves around the rest home – the hub of the village – where people from the villas, apartments/studios, and hospital come to post letters, buy milk, visit the hairdresser, use the library, and get assistance with the little things in life.

Organised group activities and outings are also run from here.

If you’re after a bit more activity, you can head to the community centre for a swim in the pool or to use the gym. There is a spa to enjoy afterwards and a cafe area to catch up with friends. The community centre also has a theatre for movie nights and is where Elmswood’s clubs meet. All residents have full access to village facilities.

Our activities include:

  • offsite excursions
  • men’s chat group
  • church services
  • weekly social hour
  • entertainers
