If the time is right for you to move into the warm embrace of an Arvida retirement community, Olive Tree is an inspired choice.

Within our beautifully landscaped grounds you’ll find everything you need for a stimulating and happy life, as well as ongoing connection with the wider Palmerston North community. At Olive Tree there’s always a social occasion, activity or event to look forward to. We offer lawn bowls, supervised exercise programmes, movie sessions, happy hours, music therapy, craft sessions, church services and much more. There is also a spa and pool complex for fitness and relaxation. To get you out and about, the community van runs shopping trips and excursions every week.

Make yourself at home in a garden paradise that changes with the seasons 

Olive Tree has extensive gardens and park areas, including flower beds and vegetable gardens where you’re welcome to lend a hand. Our ‘living a life with soul’ philosophy means we’ll help you to find meaningful outlets for your skills and passions; it also means you can discover new hobbies and interests.

Within our community we have a range of accommodation options: two-bedroom villas for independent living; one-bedroom apartments and comfortable rest home rooms for full-time care and specialist dementia care. Having this continuum of care ensures you can stay at Olive Tree, even if your needs change in the future.

Olive Tree’s manager Robyn Ballard has 15+ years of experience and is passionate about our community. She warmly welcomes you to come over, have a chat and take a look for yourself.

Ranging in size from 90 -170sqm

The two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus study villas at Olive Tree are bigger than many others in Palmerston North, plus they’re well-spaced around the community. Bring your style to a beautifully refurbished home that’s warm and welcoming. Almost all villas have an internal access garage, spacious bedrooms and ample storage. Many villas also have a conservatory for making the most out of sunny days.

The staff at Olive Tree make our care centre feel like a real home, rather than an institution.

Everyone has a role to play in making residents feel comfortable, happy and connected with what’s going on in the community. Personal freedom is respected, so residents choose when to wake up, start their day and head to the buffet breakfast. While some activities are planned, most day-to-day activities are chosen based on how everyone is feeling – just like you would in your own home.
