About Santhem Residences

We are a luxury later living operator that specialises in purpose-built premium retirement villages for those over 65. When you buy an apartment from us, it’s a retirement home you own and are free to sell at any time, it also comes with a wealth of 5-star services and facilities at your disposal. Everything we provide is centred around your good health and happiness.

When you move into one of our villages, you’re joining a reassuringly safe and welcoming community. A place where you can maintain your independence and stay in control of your life, so you can keep doing the things you love with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that personal care and support is on hand if needed in the future.

Our villages have their own on-site management team who take great care in selecting the most passionate professionals for every role. There is a highly trained Village Manager as well as departmental managers looking after the day-to-day running of the village. And should you decide to make Santhem your home, it’s likely that you and the team will come to know each other very well.
