Mayfair is a warm, comfortable, friendly and welcoming village – our philosophy is “your home, our care”. We provide a continuum of care with options including complete independence in our modern villas, assisted living and up to full rest home level care in our studios or apartments, and resthome or hospital level of care. The facility is a short distance to 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.

We’d love you to come and join our community where there are lots of opportunities to make new friends. Our 11 modern villas make up a small but very supportive part of our village. They are spacious, well insulated and have modern appliances, heatpump, dishwasher, insinkerator, walk-in shower facilities and garage with internal access.

Our one bed roomed 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 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

Life at Mayfair

Mayfair offers a variety of activities and events throughout the year. Our activities programme caters for a diverse range of abilities and interests - however we are always open to new suggestions.

A Resident Newsletter is sent out 3 monthly which outlines special events, activities & outings planned plus a photo gallery page of activities completed. A monthly activity planner is delivered to all residents at the beginning of the month.

Celebrations of residents’ birthdays are popular, and family are invited to participate and enjoy the day. Mayfair also caters for our men with special events - for example, men’s lunch outings, fish and chip lunches and visits to the local Airforce Museum.
