Telephone 09 815 4250 www.humphreyslandscaping.co.nz r older family members Creatng a home away from home is an on-going project at Ambridge Rose Villa and the residents are enjoying the restoraton of the homestead to its former glory. Early in 2015, Allan and Linda Sargeant were excited to take ownership of the historical property, Marvon Downs, that has been a rest home for more than 40 years. The couple have spent more than a decade caring for older people at Ambridge Rose Manor in Edgewater Drive, Pakuranga. To extend their family-oriented care they wanted a quaint home with character. “We were looking for a unique property that we could develop into a boutque-style rest home, where residents feel like they are in family-home surroundings,” says Allan. Formerly known as Marvon Downs Rest Home, the name was changed to Ambridge Rose Villa Rest Home to include it as part of the family of care facilites owned and operated by Allan and Linda. “The history of Marvon Downs homestead is important to us and we’ve included the story on our website,” says Allan. The décor makeover started in the original entrance, dining room, bathroom and lounge, and will contnue throughout residents’ rooms and facilites. Family care As well as Linda and Allan at the helm of Ambridge Rose Villa, residents are cared for 24/7 by dedicated healthcare assistants who love their work. The skilled team stays up-to- date with the latest caregiving techniques that keep the residents and staﬀ members safe and healthy. Cooks use quality ingredients to provide nutritous, home- style meals in the villa kitchen and dietary needs and personal preferences are accommodated. There is also an on-site laundry to keep residents’ clothing clean and in good conditon. Ambridge Rose Villa lifestyle The team at Ambridge Rose Villa plans fun actvites that keep residents busy and involved with each other as well as community groups. “When musicians, toddlers, church groups and a tai chi instructor visit, it puts a sparkle in everyone’s eyes,” says Allan. “Families are encouraged to visit and we love putng on a barbecue every now and then to catch up with everyone.” Needs assessment for rest home care Families and guardians concerned about the lifestyle of an older person can request a needs assessment by their district health board and the care plan may recommend rest home care. Ambridge Rose Villa is an approved rest home care provider and is regularly audited. Residents are assisted with actvites for daily living, some personal hygiene care and possibly mobility assistance. They would not require high levels of daily nursing and medical care.

HISTORY Marvon Downs homestead was built in 1931 for Archie and Gladys Millen on their 100- acre town supply dairy farm. Designed by popular architect of the era, Norman Wade, the homestead was considered one of Auckland's most modern homes. The farmhouse had a shell driveway, made from cockle shells from Eastern Beach. Two large phoenix palm trees dominated the front lawn. The farm was sold in 1971 for residental subdivision and when Pakuranga Road was widened in the 1970s one of the large phoenix palms was replanted opposite the Pakuranga Plaza shopping centre. The other palm remains at the site. Marvon Downs farm, circa 1932.
