For Levin retiree Noleen Seddon, moving into Enliven’s Reevedon Village was like moving back home.
“My mum lived at Reevedon Village and I now live in the same cottage. It’s like I’ve come home,” says Noleen.
Like many Levin locals, Noleen has a very special relationship with the local home and village. Both her mum and husband have been residents there and Noleen has been a volunteer for the last 18 years.
“My husband lived in the rest home for almost three years before he passed away in 2001. I was going there every day to see him – that’s when I decided to move into the village next door,” Noleen explains.
“He would visit me in my villa but he would never stay the night because Reevedon was his home. I could see why though, it’s the most welcoming and warm place and caregivers are marvelous.”
She enjoyed the home’s atmosphere so much that she became a volunteer while her husband was a resident.
“I’ve had to slow down now because of my health, but when I volunteered I took the bowls and helped with activities and outings.”
Now Noleen says living next door to Reevedon Home gives her peace of mind.
“I’m independent but I know they will look after me if I ever need it. I feel part of the home here. The staff treat me so nicely.”
Reevedon Retirement Village residents are given preferential entry into Enliven’s rest homes, including the neighbouring Reevedon Home, as well as Levin Home for War Veterans. In addition, Enliven can also arrange short or long-term healthcare assistance, practical home help, personal care services, meals and house keeping services.
