‘‘From the minute that peo­ple walk into the show home, they com­ment on the feel­ing of spa­cious­ness that the high ceil­ings give. Vis­i­tors also love the fact that there is an en­trance foyer, some­thing which is not of­ten seen in re­tire­ment vil­lages, and the kitchen, of course, gets lots of ooh’s and aah’s.’’

Hall said vis­i­tors to the show home aree as keenly in­ter­ested in the ben­e­fits of liv­ing in the vil­lage as they are about the show home it­self. Peo­ple want to know about the care that is avail­able through Cam­bridge Resthaven and the so­cial side of be­ing in the vil­lage. So he gets them to talk to vil­lage co­or­di­na­tor, Gay­lene Cal­laghan - she or­gan­ises the so­cial support and so­cial events, such as the weekly morn­ing teas, reg­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, out­ings and mo­bil­ity scooter treks.

The show home is open to view from 1-3pm ev­ery Sun­day in Septem­ber. Al­ter­na­tively, those in­ter­ested can con­tact vil­lage man­ager San­dra Ben­nett, to make an ap­point­ment - con­tact de­tails are 07 827 6097, or email san­dra ben­nett@resthaven.org.nz.
