Glenbrae Village Resthome and Hospital is set in award winning gardens, close to Rotorua City Centre and surrounding communities. It’s a place where you can easily retain ties with family, friends and community groups, while developing new friendships and interests inside the village. Daily life involves contact with others, the chance to participate in a diverse range of activities and share good times and memories with newly-made friends.
Independent living or rest home level care
Within Glenbrae you’ll find tastefully designed villas, Service Apartments and a care facility (Resthome and Hospital). We provide a range of options and can cater for your current requirements, and adapt to changes in your health or personal circumstances should they occur. This will give you, your spouse or partner and your family the comfort of knowing you’ll always have the support and care you need.
As an Arvida village, we take care to listen and help residents to continue to enjoy the things they love to do. We also offer a one-on-one personal coaching programme that actively empowers residents to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How does the Village Fee work?
The village fee is a set monthly fee that covers all the outgoings, including council and water rates, building insurance and external maintenance, upkeep of community facilities, staff costs, gardening and management of the village.
As we want to provide certainty for all customers, we’ve adopted a ‘fixed for life’ weekly village fee (for independent Villas and Apartments). This base weekly fee will never change from the day you join us, so you know exactly what your outgoings will be each week.
2. Who pays for the refurbishment of the villa/apartment when I leave?
On termination of your ORA, Glenbrae is responsible for all refurbishment costs associated with your villa or apartment.
3. What happens if my needs change?
At Glenbrae we offer a full continuum of care so you can access additional care services while remaining in your own
home. We can assist with meals, laundry, cleaning, access to doctors and nurses and 24 hour emergency assistance and
the ability to transfer to an apartment or resthome.
4. Can my friends and family stay with me?
Yes, of course. When you move into Glenbrae we want you to maintain your family and social ties, and even expand them!
This is your home, so you can have guests over to visit or stay whenever you like. It’s up to you.
