WHY CLASSIC LIFE

Life starts here.

Our mission is to create progressive communities that foster lifestyle, connection, and a true sense of belonging. Which means building a better life for our residents, one that challenges the concept of retirement and the levels of independence, fulfilment, freedom, adventure, stimulation, and quality simply not available elsewhere.

CLASSIC LIFE

Our values

The kind of life our residents want to live is what’s important and we are at our happiest when we see them thriving and having a good time. We’re not a corporate and we’re not a hospital, which means we can be closer to residents and care like crazy.

We work hard to understand what our residents want and need, whether this is connecting with others, meeting new people, being part of some great conversations, or getting out and about, chasing new adventures. We’re here to help.

This one may seem cliché but working as a team really is what we’re about. No-one here is ever short of support or attention because as ‘Classic people’, we understand the value of having empathy, EQ, personal relationships, friendships and real connections.

ThisAnd that plays out within our villages and between our villages. Wonderful, vibrant communities like ours breed accessibility, culture, harmony, camaraderie and a deeper sense of contentment. Our message to NZ is, “Come and say hi! Come and meet our people.”

Who said retirees have to slow down? Most of our residents still have a huge list to conquer, plenty of hobbies and interests, and they don’t really talk about the ‘r’ word. They’re older yes, but they’re not ‘old’. And we agree.

One of our passions is giving residents the freedom to live their lives as they choose. Without compromising on it. From conventional to unconventional and everything in between. Of course, it all depends on the resident, and no two are the same, but life is for living and Classic is enthusiastic, optimistic, positive, and upbeat about the how we will continue to challenge the concept of retirement.

Seriously. The quality and finish of every Classic build is second to none and always has been. Team this together with a culture of proactive, relentless service and you have our recipe for ‘excellence’.

We create homes that we would want to live in. Because our roots in the building industry are a few decades old now, designing and building quality, healthy, functional, and beautiful villages comes naturally. There’s an aftercare service and rigorous programme of maintenance for every home we build to ensure our residents don’t have to worry and that their homes are kept in top shape.

CLASSIC LIFE

We understand.

New Zealanders’ stepping into this chapter are educated, and their perception of (and plans for) their ‘retirement’ are changing. They’re healthier than previous generations and are eager to maintain their independence, while building strong connections for many years to come.

They’re more active, positive, and want to maintain their health some of our residents are still employed or run their own businesses!

CLASSIC LIFE

It’s a new playbook.

We want to create desirable and flexible lifestyle choices that foster a way of living that is liberating, connected, safe, fun, and respectful.

It’s a new playbook, it’s the future, and we are proud to be offering our residents exceptional experiences, and a true sense of belonging.
