Edith Cavell Lifecare & Village
Rest Home Care
When it comes to everyday life, Edith Cavell makes it easy with a choice of spacious studio rooms, Village townhouses, and large Rest Home rooms, complete with WiFi and a nurse call system. There’s also an on-site Hospital to give you added peace of mind.
Part of the Sumner community since 1970 and extensively refurbished since then, Edith Cavell Lifecare & Village is set amongst landscaped gardens just a stroll from the friendly Sumner village and the sea. We also offer Respite, Convalescence and Palliative care.
We offer everything from a scooter bay to SKY TV, physiotherapy, podiatry, hairdressing and health checks. We have a range of recreational activities including indoor bowls, exercise classes, quizzes and social gatherings. Our facility van is always on hand for outings.
Everyday Heritage Stories
Discover some of our stories from around New Zealand. Our people make us who we are. With everyone’s different backgrounds and stories, they all come together to make the best version of Heritage Lifecare.

I didn’t expect to be so happy living here, the food is nice and the care you get is really lovely
Levels of care
Rest Home Care
If you or a loved one have a medical condition or are less able to lead an independent life, our Rest Home living offers dedicated 24/7 care from our team of registered nurses and trained carers.
If you or a loved one suffer from significant disabilities or medical conditions, particularly where the loss of cognitive abilities is a recognised factor, our Hospital Care could be just what you’re looking for.
Heritage Lifecare Respite services provide carers with a much needed short-term break. It is different from our Day Programme service as it allows guests to stay under our care for more than a day and up to a couple of weeks.
Are you looking for an independent lifestyle with care available when you need it? Take a look at our Villages that offer units, villas or townhouses for independent living, with the peace of mind that care is on hand if needed.
Additional Daily Accommodation Charges
We are pleased to be able to offer residents coming into our homes a range of premium room options. The premium room options provide intending residents with choices to suit their individual preferences, e.g. a full en-suite, semi ensuite, larger room or unique view.
A Premium Room Accommodation Charge is a fee that you pay in addition to your Daily Care Fee. The amount of additional charge depends on your rooms features, and this varies based on the premium room features and by Care Home location. Accommodation Premium Room charges range from: $10 to $40*.
