'Moving here has saved my life! I feel safe, I love the neighbours and it’s close to town. It’s clean and friendly and we are well looked after by Lloyd and the Trust. I’ve got no complaints, it’s a happy environment. This is my family now - I don’t want to move again!'
‘I enjoy helping and being helped - I can help my older neighbours feel more secure. It’s good to have more space too, I was living in one of those cabins before, and I am a big man. It was too small!’
‘I’m 85 & grew up in Taranaki. I’ve done farmwork, driving heavy machinery, security officer, sold cars - all sorts. It’s peaceful and quiet here, and I don’t have to worry about anything. It feels secure, it’s a huge relief.’
‘I heard about it by chance, by word of mouth - I feel privileged to have found it. It’s an ideal location, close to everything - I have difficulty walking far. Got my own space, nobody in my face, but people around. I moved here from a shed tacked onto the side of a garage - so this is a big improvement!’
'The Rangimarie Trust has been amazing ... we really want to thank them.'
