Living & Care Options


The majority of our residents live with us permenently.  There are many different room options available.  Each unit is self-contained with an ensuite, television, tea and coffee making facilities and a nurse call.

We strive to do our best to assist you in making the right choice about your retirement living and care options. We invite you to contact us so we can offer you a guided tour through the facility and also share more information with you and your family about living at “Fitzroy of Merivale”.


Respite care is funded by the Ministry of Health and can be accessed through your own doctor. It is a wonderful opportunity for people to have time out and a break away from their home. Alternatively, it can be used to help to a loved one who has been caring for you. As long as we have rooms available you would be most welcome to join us for your respite care. Numerous people have had several visits to “Fitzroy of Merivale” utilising this service. Many have gone on to make the decision to live pernamently with us. Whilst here you will enjoy all our services, including your very spacious private room and ensuite together with direct access the the beautiful Fitzroy gardens.


In addition to the government funded respite care, Fitzroy also offers short term private care. Once again this is dependent on room availability. This service is funded by the resident and the length of stay is arranged between Fitzroy, the resident and their family. Short term care options give flexability to all parties and once again the opportunity to experience all that “Fitzroy of Merivale” has to offer. Each unit is self-contained with an ensuite, television, nurse-call, tea and coffee making facilities. Short term care residents are assured of receiving all the benefits of living in this supportive environment.
