Poll: Do you think Auckland is the world's most liveable city?

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

Auckland has topped the global rankings of liveability, rising 11 places to take the top spot.

The survey, commissioned by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), gives mathematical weight to such a claim. New Zealand's world-leading response to the spread of Covid-19 has been cited as one of the leading factors in the significant jump in rankings.

The EIU's index rates the living conditions and comprises 30 factors grouped into five categories: stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

Meet Meadowbank’s lovely new Care Manager.

Oceania Healthcare

Oceania has always believed in better and so does Meadowbank’s new Care Manager, Suzette Vorster.

Having worked in Aged Care for several years, Suzette’s favourite thing about her work has remained the same – giving back to those who’ve done so much for Aotearoa.

“Our residents have a lifetime of knowledge and have worked hard in often difficult times. I see it as such a privilege to be in a position to lead a team of people who are passionate about caring for them.”

Suzette’s recipe for great care is simple. “Great care means meeting a resident’s daily needs with empathy and warmth – to deliver the kind of care that anyone would want their Mum or Dad to have.”

She’s excited to take on a new challenge in our vibrant village beside Orakei Basin.

“Meadowbank is a beautiful site– it’s a place anyone would feel proud to live in and a place families enjoy visiting. Our Care Suites provide a feeling of independence within the comfort and security of exceptional 24/7, round-the-clock care.” And her vision for Meadowbank goes beyond brick and mortar.

“The heart of it is the people – staff who provide empathy and love, and residents who live their years to the fullest.”

To learn more about our Care Suites with Rest Home and Hospital level care, get in touch with Suzette today.
