What qualities are important in a partner and how did you meet your partner?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from North Harbour News

Hi neighbours, A survey of 2000 Kiwis has shown different generations place value different qualities when looking for love. Young adults, aged 16 to 34, ranked a sense of humour as the most important quality in a partner, where as most 55- to 64-year-olds viewed sharing values as more important than sharing a laugh together. Younger people were also more likely to judge potential partners on their looks and perhaps unsurprisingly, more likely to meet their significant other online. What do you think is the most important quality in a partner and how did you meet yours? Please write "NFP" if you don't want your comment to appear in stories.

Where community and staff come together

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.

“The staff are absolutely amazing,” explains Glenda. “They go out of their way to speak to you, to make sure you’re ok.”
Hoko and Glenda feel very fortunate for the support they received when Hoko experienced some health issues. It wasn’t just the village staff who provided support, the whole community rallied around them.
“When I got sick the community itself looked after me,” Hoko explains.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here,” Glenda says.
