At Mayfair our philosophy is “your home, our care” and our wonderful care staff take great pride in making you feel truly at home here. Whether you enjoy independent living in one of our modern villas, assisted living with rest home level care in our studios or apartments, or you need a little more care and attention in our resthome or hospital, you’ll truly feel at home here, enjoying genuine companionship and a sense of ‘being part of things’. The village is a short distance from both Westfield and Bush Inn shopping centres and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and sheltered lawn areas where you can stroll or sit and enjoy the sunshine.

Our community also offers lots of opportunities to make new friends. Our 11 modern villas make up a small but very supportive part of our village - spacious, well insulated and they have modern appliances, heatpump, dishwasher, walk-in shower facilities and garage with internal access.

Our one bedroom apartments and studios are ideal for those wanting to own their own home, but also have the support of our friendly well trained team to assist.

As an Arvida village, we take great care to listen closely and help residents to continue to enjoy the things they love to do. We encourage all our residents to guide us on daily routine times, from when you like to get up and have breakfast, what you prefer to eat at mealtimes, the things you like to spend your day doing and when you like to go to bed at night. The attitude of living well drives our desire to make the most of every day, and the wonderful aroma of freshly made baking and home cooked meals in our kitchen certainly helps us all to feel like we belong here!

Rest home and hospital care

Our care is centered around the needs of our residents, and we have a strong feeling that we work in your home and around your timetables – not residents living around ours.
