Allan and Linda Sargeant, owners of Ambridge Rose Manor Private Hospital, have taken the former Mar- von Downs Rest Home at 369 Pakuranga Road, under their wing renaming it Ambridge Rose Villa Rest Home. Allan says the decision came naturally for Ambridge Rose Manor to have a sister facility that provides per- sonalised, boutique care for older people. “In the past residents from Marvon Downs who needed a greater level of care came to Ambridge Rose Manor and for us, it made sense to have our family-focused expertise and resources at both homes,” he says. Although renovation of the 1930s style villa is still a work in progress, Allan assures that much is being done to breathe fresh air and TLC into the well-known site. “We’re progressively improving each room and have tidied up the front area of the villa. The lovely big deck at the front has been spruced up, which gives people a place to reflect and sit in the sun.” Proudly family-owned and operated, both Ambridge Rose facilities focus on a genuine, multi-faceted level of care that places its resi- dents’ needs first. “We thrive on making people happy but we also understand the challenges that people and their fami- lies face as they arrive at different stages in life,” says Allan. As a result, the close-knit Ambridge Rose Villa team supports families and guard- ians – supporting them dur- ing the district health board assessment process to ensure each person receives the best possible care. With the new relationship between Ambridge Rose Manor and Ambridge Rose Villa, Allan hopes to see resi- dents reap the rewards. “We’ve seen how our resi- dents have blossomed with a well-considered activities programme and it makes a big difference to their qual- ity of life. Hosting events between the two venues fosters more friendships and fun.” Book a visit at the new- look Ambridge Rose Villa Rest Home today at: Ambridge Rose Villa Rest Home 369 Pakuranga Road, Pakuranga.

What a great project, especially as travelling during your retirement years has lots of advantages. Be careful, however, to stay within your limits, as well as your budget. After all, you want to be able to make the most of this opportunity for as long as possible. Now you can go away whenever you want, which allows you to take advantage of last minute deals or take part in events that you’ve always dreamed of, such as the Rio carnival or Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Or maybe you’ve always wanted to see the Monaco Grand Prix or tennis at Wimbledon. Since there’s no limit to the duration of your vacations now, you can take the time to do everything you want. Travelling no longer has to be an exhausting marathon, a whirlwind of visits where you cram in as much as possible in a short amount of time. In other words, travel doesn’t have to be synonymous with exhaustion anymore. Not only do you have time to travel, you also have time to plan your own trip. You can now put together the trip of your dreams, a journey that will be tailor-made to meet your best expectations. So what to do?
