A full range of positive ageing services

Enliven offers a full range of positive ageing services. Kōwhainui Village offers independent retirement living in licence to occupy (LTO) villas. We also offer a small number of rental units.

At neighbouring Kōwhainui Home we offer both short and long term rest home and hospital level care. That means if your needs change, so too can the support we provide. It also make Kōwhainui Home and Village a perfect option for couples who need different levels of support.

If there comes a time village residents need extra support, they will have priority entry to our Kōwhainui Home when there is availability.
