Welcome to our village

Eastcliffe is an ideal choice for the retirement you want. Life…your way.

As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Life is meant to be lived!”  Start your retirement journey at Eastcliffe.

Maybe it is time to start swimming again, or to learn a new hobby, like mah-jong, tai chi or Zumba? There is always time to catch up with neighbours for a cuppa, or wine, and an adventure.

Maybe it’s time to do less, stay home and enjoy “me” time?  The choice is yours!

Enjoy the privacy and sense of home you currently have, while we take care of tasks, like lawn-mowing and outdoor maintenance.  Live the way you choose with family and friends still offering help and support when you need it.

If you need a bit of help or want to spend more time having fun and less time doing chores, let us take care of the cleaning and laundry.  If you don’t feel like cooking, let our chefs tempt you with a delicious meal. When you need more support, or if your health needs change, our friendly and caring rest home or hospital team are on hand to help you and your family transition to care.

In safe hands
