House repairs can get expensive and add worry and stress to your retirement. The solution, as one Levin retiree suggests, is to sell up and move to Reevedon Retirement Village.
Rosalie Clark moved to a villa at the Enliven village in central Levin a year ago, and she says she couldn’t be happier with her choice.
“I love it here, if I won lotto I wouldn’t move. I’ve got everything I need and I’m happy here. I feel safe and I don’t worry anymore.”
She says one of the biggest benefits is being able to enjoy a stress-free retirement.
“I was living in a small house in Levin but I didn’t want to worry about the upkeep of my own home anymore,” Rosalie explains.
“When I looked around, I found Reevedon Village was the most affordable and had the best location.”
Rosalie says Reevedon Village’s location on Salisbury Street in the heart of Levin can’t be beat.
“The location is absolutely brilliant. You’re right in the centre of town and I have a carport right outside my back door which I drive right into. It’s great.”
While Rosalie enjoys living independently, she says having Reevedon Home next door, also operated by Enliven, is a good arrangement.
“The respite care is there if you need it. It’s a nicely run home they always have something on for the residents. Each month they organise for us [village residents] to go on village outings which I always take part in,” Rosalie explains.
“We get given a weekly programme of what’s going on every day at the home and we can join in with recreation anytime if we want to.”
Reevedon Retirement Village is operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central. Any surpluses generated are used to improve and develop its Enliven and Family Works services and facilities.
Enliven can arrange short or long-term healthcare assistance, practical home help, personal care services, meals and house keeping services for Reevedon Village residents.
Reevedon Village residents are also given preferential entry into Enliven homes, such as Reevedon Home and sister-site Levin Home for War Veterans in Levin.
