The annual Enliven Vacation Club was a raving success according to its members.
Three residents of an Enliven rest home in New Plymouth and three residents from Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori swapped homes for a week to enjoy a holiday.
Vacation Club member and Chalmers Home resident Ettie Green, says she had a blast spending the week at Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori.
“The staff are just lovely there, they really are. The manager is lovely too. We were doing so much every day that we were absolutely stuffed, but it was lovely,” says Ettie.
“We had a wonderful time. The war museum was brilliant, and the cable car and the gardens.”
She says she and the two other rest home residents from New Plymouth were glad to have taken up the opportunity of going on a vacation.
“We took a while to think about whether we would go or not. We were worried we would get too tired, but our families all encouraged us to go which helped to make our minds up. We’re all glad we went – it was terrific.”
Ettie says if they were living in Wellington they know which home they would choose.
“We loved the place [Huntleigh Home] and if anybody is thinking about a new home they should go there!”
