Applying for a housing for the elderly unit

To apply for a unit please complete the housing for the elderly application form.

The fully completed Housing for the Elderly Application form and supporting documentation can be handed into any of the Waimakariri District Council’s Service Centres, or emailed to, or posted to:

Waimakariri District Council
Private Bag 1005

When a fully completed application form with all supporting documentation is received by the Council, it is referred to the person responsible for your preferred area to process, you will be contacted by phone within one week to arrange an appointment for an 'Application Interview'.

You are welcome to bring a support person with you to your interview.

After the interview, if your application is approved, your name will be placed on the waiting list. Units are allocated on a need basis and not necessarily offered to the first person on the waiting list. The applicant’s current living arrangements and any medical requirements are also considered when units are allocated.
