Sharon from Te Atatu South

Photo 1: Freesias. YES, THESE DO have a lovely scent!!!!!!!! =D Photo 2: Cornflower (I think). Photo 3: Forget-me-not. Photo 4: Poached egg flower (I think). Photo 5: I don't know. Some unnamed blueish/purple-ish flower, but very pretty. Photo 6: Begonia. Photo 7: Bright yellow dianthus (I think). Photo 8: Double Delight Rose. =D MY favourite!!!!!!!! =D Photo 9: Poppy!!!!!!!! =D MY OTHER favourite!!!!!!!! =D Photo 10: My purple dianthus I got from a customer who didn't want it when she was moving house. =D Photo 11: My two polyanthus I got from her at the same time. =D The one on the left has yellow flowers, and the one on the right looks VERY unfortunate but had both red AND purple flowers with yellow centres, maybe it's two plants in one, I dunno. But it's got a little bud in the centre that's going to become a purple flower, so I'll get a photo of that one when it opens. =D In the meantime, ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D Heheheheheh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D

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.
