Feilding retiree, Barbara Wishnowsky, couldn’t imagine anywhere she would rather live than Enliven’s Coombrae Retirement Village.
Mrs Wishnowsky moved to Coombrae Retirement Village almost five years ago with her husband Trevor, who sadly passed away last year.
She explains that when the time came for the couple to downsize and move into a more manageable and accessible home, Coombrae Retirement Village ticked all of the boxes.
“My villa is just the right size for me and I have a garage for my car. It’s a small village that is really close to town and has a great community feel to it. Best of all, it is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has a semi-rural feel to it.
My family loves coming to visit me here – especially my great grandson who is fascinated by the animals in the paddock just over the fence!”
Coombrae villas have been designed for people who want their own home, but would like to know help is on hand when they need it.
“I couldn’t be happier here,” says Mrs Wishnowsky “I have the freedom of living my own life in my own home, and the security of knowing that support is right next door at Coombrae Home if I need it. We even have a village supervisor who comes round each morning to check that all is well.
I’m sure the time will come when I need more support at home. It doesn’t worry me too much though, as I know all of the staff at Coombrae Home and will only have to move next door!”
Villa residents also have the opportunity to join in with the regular entertainment, activities and outings taking place Coombrae Home.
“I don’t go on too many of the trips as I have my own car, but I’ve used Coombrae Home’s Recreation Room for a number of special family occasions including my 80th birthday party.”
Mrs Wishnowsky is encouraging others like her to take a tour of the villas at one of the Open Days held on the fourth Friday of each month. Call the Village sales agent, Allan, on 06 366 0444 to find out more.
