Independent Apartments

HBH Senior Living’s spacious apartments offer the best of both worlds: the freedom to live independently, with the reassurance that help is just a call-button away. You can choose from any or all of our residential services, such as activities, outings, meals, home help or nursing care. And, because maintenance is taken care of, you’ll have more time to do the things you love.

Care philosophy

To give older people the opportunity to maintain their independence and live with dignity and safety in their own home, knowing that support and nursing care is right at hand if required.

Living space

One- to two-bedroom apartments include full security and internal lift access from the car park. All apartments have a fresh, modern interior design with easy flow and convenient access to amenities.

Level of care

Independent living, with care if you need it. Our apartments have been designed with easy access from the rest home and hospital to allow for nursing care if required. This means that, depending on the level of care required, apartment owners could receive that care in their own apartment. Note: Apartments can be fully serviced if required or desired.


Our apartments are just a five-minute drive from Howick Village, and a mini bus is available to take you shopping and on outings. An on-site hairdresser, men’s shed and weekly shopping bus are available for residents, as well as a range of regular social functions and activities (coordinated by our Social Coordinator). The HBH Senior Living Day Programme is also available to apartment residents (DHB funding criteria applies).


We offer chaplaincy and twice weekly church services on site in the adjoining rest home and hospital. All apartments have emergency call buttons in every room and a registered nurse is available by phone for advice 24/7.

What do our owners and families love about our apartments?

I used to live down a right of way and during the lockdown last year I saw no one. I’m so pleased I moved to HBH and have a ready-made community around me and people to chat with – albeit from a distance at the moment!
Fran - Resident

In every little way, we care.

Thank you very much for your help when I was taken ill on Tuesday –  you made me feel so safe in the middle of the night.
