Huntleigh Home, Wellington
Enliven’s Huntleigh Home is a warm and vibrant place to live.
Conveniently located in central Karori, the modern and stylish Huntleigh Home overlooks a sunny central courtyard and residents enjoy the easy indoor-outdoor living.
At Huntleigh Home there are lots of shared spaces, including lounges and courtyards. This is where you’ll find residents reading, socialising, hosting visitors, attending concerts and taking part in the many recreation activities on offer.
A highlight for many residents and visitors is the fabulous shop and café. Known as the Trading Post, the shop is run by residents and volunteers. You’ll often find avid conversations happening in the café. It’s a great place for an ice-cream in summer too.
The Trading Post is not the only place where residents call the shots. At Huntleigh Home residents also have plenty of input and direction when it comes to the recreation programme, visiting entertainers, the menu… the residents of Huntleigh Home even designed and had their very own flag made!
At Huntleigh Home we embrace Enliven’s philosophy of care. That means we will take every opportunity to make sure you have companionship, spontaneity, fun, meaningful activity and a sense of purpose in your life here.
You place. Your space.
Residents of Huntleigh Home enjoy the large well-appointed rooms, many of which include an ensuite bathroom and/or kitchenette.
Elders are invited to set their room up just how they like it. We encourage residents to bring along their own familiar things that make them feel at home. Many residents bring items such as photographs, artwork, ornaments, bed covers and even favourite pieces of furniture. Some even bring along a pet!
Most rooms at Huntleigh Home are large enough to accommodate a television, stereo, a dressing table, small couch or table and/or a small fridge.
