Award-Winning in the South Island

ARCHER is the ‘People’s Winner’

The inaugural AgedAdvisor Awards have just been announced…and Archer Home has been voted FIRST PLACE by the people for Large Care homes for the South Island!
Archer is the People’s Winner, and we’re very proud of that. We have won this award in 2015, 2017 and 2018.

If you are looking for Christchurch retirement villages or rest homes in Christchurch aligned with your needs and beliefs, you’ve come to the right place.

We warmly invite you to consider joining our Archer family.

We work hard to make Archer a place where you’d love to join the family, and our motto – ‘living life, loving life’ – is a reflection of that. Living in an Archer home is not simply about surviving, it’s about thriving and experiencing life in all its fullness. Our goal is to encourage all residents to appreciate every day and enjoy it fully.

LOVING LIFE: The Archer Vision

We aim to help you love life, invest, embrace your faith and offer perhaps some new adventures. We don’t just provide you with your needs; we help you find your passions, too.

Archer has been providing aged care in NZ for over 60 years, and most of our staff have been with us for many years. Archer focuses on a warm, homey feel for its residents, staff, and families within its complexes.

Thank you for considering Archer. Please feel free to talk to any of our staff, and as we often hear people say that it’s not just the glitz, but the feel of a place that makes the difference.
