We believe everybody
deserves to enjoy life,
whatever their age
For retirees Jeanette Brunton and Robin Lane, moving to an Enliven retirement apartment means they no longer need to worry.
Enliven, part of Presbyterian Support Central, operates Huntleigh Retirement Apartments in Karori and Woburn Retirement Apartments in Lower Hutt.
Jeanette and her husband Robin moved from their Khandallah home to Enliven’s Woburn Apartments in October last year to give themselves peace of mind.
“We were looking for a place with the possibility of continuing care if and when we need it, and where the profits didn’t go to shareholders,” Jeanette explains.
Once they made the move, Jeanette says she was surprised by the amount of services Enliven provides to help retirement apartment residents to keep their independence.
“I was very happy to come here and understand that they want us to stay here for as long as we can. The home and hospital are there if we need them.”
Enliven provides a full range of positive ageing services in Wellington, including retirement villages and apartments, in-home support, rest homes, hospital and dementia care.
Jeanette says she and her husband are glad they decided to spend their retirement at Woburn Apartments in Lower Hutt.
“We like it here. We’re surrounded by trees and you can hear the tui singing, there are very good shops nearby and there are wonderful parks and walking tracks,” Jeanette explains.
“We like walking out our door into fresh air rather than into a corridor. For people who want their independence and privacy this is the perfect place for them.”
