A Christchurch retirement community offering independent living and aged care

The first thing everyone notices about Rhodes on Cashmere is the panorama. Wonderful views can be enjoyed from the on-site Rhodes Café, outdoor areas and many of the apartments. The community’s social life is supported by a programme of guest speakers, community events and outings. For residents’ hobbies and wellbeing, there are shared vege gardens, a gym, fitness classes, library, workshop and hair salon. Nearby, the Purau Reserve has lovely walking tracks.

Around the Cashmere neighbourhood, there are clubs for bowls, tennis and croquet. Supermarkets and malls are nearby, and the exciting restaurants and retail precincts of central Christchurch are just 12 minutes away. When younger members of the family come to stay, there’s a choice of local playgrounds.

The new care centre at this Christchurch retirement community is built on the site of the Rhodes Memorial Convalescent Home, a historic building that had to be demolished following the Christchurch earthquakes. The development of the care centre continues the tradition of care on the Rhodes site.

Arvida. Living a life with soul.
