Over-65s go flat­ting

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Two new res­i­dents are needed for a San­dring­ham house pro­vid­ing “flat­ting for oldies.”

Eleven over-65s live to­gether in the two-storey home, sup­ported by a house­keeper.

An open day will be held on Satur­day for older peo­ple in­ter­ested in tak­ing one of two va­cant rooms.

It was built by the Abbeyfield in­cor­po­rated so­ci­ety in 2006 on land gifted by Auck­land City Coun­cil.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Norma Gor­don­says it’s ideal for older peo­ple who are lonely but want to re­main in­de­pen­dent.

“It’s a lovely place and the peo­ple are very happy there,” she says.

Rent is $310 a week, which in­cludes meals and the cost of a house­keeper and cook.

Res­i­dents have private rooms and a guest suite is avail­able for fam­ily and friends.

The open day is on Satur­day be­tween 9am and noon, and 1pm and 4pm, at 6 Car­rie St, San­dring­ham.
