About Us

Three decades of experience

Lady Wigram is family-owned and family-run, locally. The Village’s sophisticated design, welcoming environment and high-end service level have been the owner’s guiding principles since its opening in 2015.

Built as part of the Golden Healthcare Group, Lady Wigram has now moved on independently with John Tooby continuing to give his sole focus to the Village. John and his daughter, Olivia, are a well-matched management team – they enjoy interacting with residents and their families on a daily basis, preferring to keep communications local rather than using off-site management.

What our residents
are saying...

"Our move into Lady Wigram Retirement Village, was to future proof ourselves in case of further health issues. We never expected to enjoy it as much as we do. We live a completely independent lifestyle but with like-minded residents in the village we have made lots of new friends. The villas are very luxuriously appointed which is an added bonus."

"I feel at peace here, this is home. I no longer have to cook for one and eat alone, all I need to do is walk into the Club House, I have never been so busy in my life. So rich in experience and we laugh, so I am here to stay and I am only 70!"

“I’m new to Christchurch yet I’m treated as one of the locals by the residents and the incredible staff. The rapport and friendships we have here are really strong and I feel blessed to be able to live here.”
