Rodney Times : November 18th 2010
12 RODNEY TIMES, NOVEMBER 18, 2010 Retiring to a resort may sound like a dream, but it's a reality for residents at Orewa's Evelyn Page Retirement Village. You could mistake the village for a luxury resort - the lobby makes a grand first impression, housing a display of vibrant, colourful art by Evelyn Page. The gym, heated pool and spa pool are popular with those wanting to keep active, and the library is an information hub with books, internet access, and jigsaws. A movie theatre is kitted out with comfortable arm chairs to use at any time, and the theatre can also be booked for private occasions. Movies are screened regularly, or you can play your own DVD on the big screen. The village has its own beauty and hair salons, a chapel, and a convenience store. The lounge and bar are popular on Thursdays for happy hour, when the community comes together to share a drink or two and a game of billiards, bowling on the green, or petanque. The village employs three full-time gardeners to tend to the attractive gardens around the complex. Nursing staff are on call 24-hours should you have an emergency or crisis - and there is no extra charge for this. A variety of options exist to suit individual needs. From the complete independence of townhouses and spacious independent apartments, to assisted living serviced apartments and rest home, hospital and dementia care, the village can cater to your requirements. An atrium with indoor gardens, surrounded by serviced apartments, is under construction and will be completed in December. These apartments are selling fast. Serviced apartment residents enjoy nutritious meals, housekeeping and transport services for a fixed weekly fee. There are two stages of independent apartments currently under construction, and many of these have already sold. These are resident-friendly, spacious and tastefully designed, with undercover car parking, full use of all facilities, and stunning views. The first two stages of independent apartments are almost fully sold, with residents enjoying their new lifestyle and community. At Evelyn Page Retirement Village, like all Ryman Healthcare villages, life isn't about slowing down, it's about having the time to do all the things you enjoy most. Ryman Healthcare has earned a reputation for building exceptional retirement villages and employing professional and caring staff, and is a six-time winner of the Australasian Aged Care Awards for Best Retirement Village in New Zealand.
