Maples Retirement Village has operated for over 35 years as an aged care facility, and during this time has expanded from providing residential care to include modern serviced unit accommodation for semi-independent living.

A Living Environment to be enjoyed

Residents enjoy a wonderful living environment with a choice of four lounges, two dining rooms and three courtyards. All communal areas are close to rooms with easy access to gardens and connecting pathways. Because of our relatively small size, residents can easily mix with others and not feel overwhelmed or lonely. Everyone is on a first name basis, so if you are looking for a warm, friendly living environment with all the comforts of home, Maples could be just what you’re looking for.

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.

Village Life
