Aparangi Village The name 'Aparangi' may be translated to mean "a gathering or group of distinguished people" and as part of a community that has it all, Aparangi provides a safe and secure rural retirement environment. Accommodation and care options at Aparangi are wide ranging and endeavour to provide a lifestyle suitable for each resident or potential resident. The majority of the Village is devoted to highly independent "own your own housing" where a Lifetime Interest is taken on a site and a house of the residents choice (subject to Trust Board approval) can be built. Alternatively a choice of existing dwellings ranging from three bedroom+ houses to smaller detached houses and terraced townhouses, can be made. Simple Trust Board conditions of residency are in place which are designed to preserve an 'open' character to the grounds and engender an atmosphere of tranquility. As the ability of a resident to care for a large home diminishes, there is the option to move to smaller variations of their home. Further purchase options are available with Semi Independent Flats adjoining the Residential Care Unit. Also available are double or single bedroom rental terraced flats.
Residential Care Unit :: The Residential Care Unit is a rest home facility set in park-like surroundings at the heart of Aparangi Village. It is certified to provide healthcare services from the Ministry of Health thus meeting high quality standards in addition to the reputation it has earned over a number of years.
The Rentals :: Rental Housing is another option available at Aparangi. This is usually available only to those people unable financially to provide for their own housing. There is a demand for this housing, consequently a waiting list is held. Flats are allocated on the basis of need.
Semi-Independent Flats :: The Te Kauwhata Retirement Trust Board has developed Semi Independent Flats as a means of providing independence but with a higher level of care if required. These are adjacent to the Residential Care Unit with individual external entrances or can be accessed from the main entrance of the Residential Care Unit. All are self-contained with either one or two bedrooms with ensuite bathroom as well as separate lounge, dining and kitchenette.
The Terraces :: The Terraces are the foundation courtyard townhouses which were established as the core of "Own Your Own Housing" at the Village. All of these homes have northern aspects and many with beautiful views of the local Te Kauwhata scenery and beyond. They are either one or two bed roomed with lounge and dining leading to a terraced (in some instances enclosed) area.
