A thing or two about retirement living

A thing or two about retirement living

After working as an Enliven sales consultant for almost three years, Allan Davidson has learned a thing or two about retirement living, and he believes one of the biggest factors to consider is location.

“There are some major life changes when you retire and you want to be close to your family, close to support services and in a place that’s easy to get around.”

Woburn Retirement Apartments offer one and two bedroom apartments set in a peaceful, off-street location in Wai-iti Crescent, Lower Hutt.

“Woburn is a really nice area to live in and it’s highly sought after. It’s close to the shopping mall, the landscape is flat so you don’t have to navigate rolling hills when you want to go for a stroll, and public transport is close.”

Woburn Apartments also tick the box for being close to quality support services, as the adjacent Woburn Home offers a full suite of rest home, hospital and dementia care services, and Enliven offers in-home support services as well.

“There’s a lot of support available here if the apartment residents need it, but they are completely independent to enjoy their retirement years. It’s all about feeling prepared for the future.”

Allan says since opening earlier this year they have received positive feedback about the apartments from visitors and residents.

“People love the location, the modern look, the plentiful sunshine and the serene and quiet environment. All you can hear are the Tui’s singing in the surrounding trees.”

Allan says times have changed over the years, meaning most people hardly know their next-door neighbours – but this is different at Woburn.

“Living at Woburn Apartments means you’re living alongside like-minded people from a similar generation, which creates a sense of community again.”

Along with the quiet, central location and the support services on-site, Allan says another aspect which makes Enliven’s Woburn Apartments so special is because they are provided by Presbyterian Support Central.

“It’s a not-for-profit organisation and the money from the apartments gets put back into funding social services, so residents are giving back to the community by living here.”
