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.

What do you think of the Otago Daily Times' Samoa cartoon?

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

The Otago Daily Times newspaper has been heavily criticised for a cartoon it ran in print on Tuesday.

The cartoon by Garrick Tremain depicted two woman walking out of a travel agent, with one saying to the other: "I asked, 'What are the least popular spots at the moment?' She said: 'The ones people are picking up in Samoa.'"

The Samoan Government has completely shutdown its private sector following the deaths of 55 people there, most of whom were children.

What do you think of the cartoon? Do you think it's offensive and inappropriate? Or just a simple, lighthearted joke? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
