Rhodes on Cashmere is a beautifully presented aged care village located on the Cashmere Hills overlooking Christchurch, on a site steeped in history. The serviced apartments are located on the site of the former Rhodes Convalescent Home which was built in 1886. With breathtaking views over the city, Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps, this is one of most admired retirement living options in Christchurch. 

Independent living or rest home level care 

Rhodes on Cashmere offers a retirement lifestyle which is hard to beat. If you want independent living, 24-hour care options, an active, caring community and excellent facilities on your doorstep then look no further! The original building, built in 1886, sadly had to be demolished following the earthquake in 2011. The current facility containing sixteen new apartments was completed in 2001. We are now going through a resource consent process to build new care beds and additional apartments on the vacant land. 

As an Arvida village, we take great care to listen and help residents to continue to enjoy the things they love to do. We also offer a one-on-one personal coaching programme that actively empowers residents to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.
