Welcome to Northbridge Lifecare Trust

Northbridge is a retirement complex in Northcote, on Auckland’s North Shore owned and managed by the Northbridge Lifecare Trust. We provide a vigorous and supportive community for people – over the age of 60.

We are a “not for profit” organisation, registered as such under the Charitable Trustees Act, one of a few in the country.

Today retirement villages are very much a part of our urban development and environment. That was not the case in the early 1970s when the lack of planning for the wider care of the elderly recognised by a few, was brought to the attention of local authorities and other interested parties and individuals.

The intention of the early Trustees was to provide accommodation security, which was achieved from the beginning. The concept was to provide accommodation and care for their lifetime, based on the residents making a financial contribution towards the capital and maintenance costs of the complex through their Lifecare Contribution.

Northbridge Lifecare Trust Deed was established in October 1972, a structure that has remained largely unchanged through to today. Northbridge is governed by a Board of Trustees with the Director handling the day-to-day operational, financial and strategic management.

Northbridge is a Charitable Trust so all operating surpluses remain within the Trust, used for the benefit of Village and Care Facility (Rest Home & Hospital) residents. As a not-for-profit entity we have less commercial approach compared to for profit organisations.

We have great Apartments, wonderful facilities, lovely gardens, modern Hospital and Rest Home. In short, a great physical environment.

Where we are different is our unique caring culture. Talk to anybody who has been here, knows someone here, lives here or works here. We care for each other whether we are a Trustee, employee or resident living here. That’s unique and it makes us unique, it’s who we are.
