These units are part of our Retirement Village complex, which is registered under the Retirement Villages Act 2003. We are also a member of the Retirement Villages Association.
If you are still independent, not ready for rest home level care but just need a little extra support to live you life to its full, then assisted living could be for you. Our interpretation of 'independent' is that you are still able to do all the activities of dailing living that you would be doing in your own home. For example wash, dress, prepare meals, take your medication, and arrange your own social activities.
Any one aged 65 or over, who purchases the right to occupy a unit can become a resident of Tuatara Court.
The accommodation comprises of a one bedroom studio unit with a mobility friendly bathroom and a kitchenette. Residents are expected to furnish their own unit. Residents share a communal dining room and lounge area.
It is expected that you will lead an independent life within one of our units supported by the following services:
You will need to purchase an Occupational Right Agreement (ORA) for your unit which varies in price depending on the current housing market. For 2010/2011 it is anticipated that this price will be approximately $175,000. There are financial implications to purchasing an ORA all of which will need to be fully explained prior to purchase. You will then need to pay a weekly service fee of $1500 per month which pays for the services listed above and your contribution to the up keep of the village. .
Assisted Living is not available under a rental or subsidized agreement.
Make an appointment to come and see us. We can then show you around and provide you with any additional information that you and your family require to make the important decision on whether Kamo Home and Village is right for you.
