Fixed Weekly fees for Life

Our Village residents have fixed weekly fees for life from the day they walk into one of our lifestyle villages. No weekly fee increases ever!

Weekly fees reduced to 50%

The Village weekly fees are discounted from the date of Licence termination to 50% until settlement of the Licence for an outgoing resident. (Normally these fees remain at 100% for 6-months and then reduce to 50%.)

No Capital Loss

We give you and/or your family the reassurance that in a property downfall we guarantee to repay the funds owed to you with no fear of being exposed to any capital loss. Any capital loss is covered by Archer Trust.

Advance on your Licence Refund

A $20,000 advance can be provided to residents transferring to residential care and awaiting the Accommodation subsidy to be approved; or provided to an Estate of a resident for costs they may be incurring for farewelling a loved one.


“I am grateful for all your loving support not only to me but to my family…”
