The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.

Parking Ticket

Debra from Milson

Today I got a Parking ticket from (Wilson parking) which is unusual for me. More unusual is that I got it for not putting up my Mobility Card when in a Mobility Park at Countdown Ranagitiki Supermarket. Yes I do have a Card and the mobility issue that says I can use these parks and am sure that as usual I put it up when I left my car. Strangely until today was unaware that Wilson Parking was monitoring these parks. How do I prove that it was up when they say it wasn't and I didn't find the ticket till I got home? For others, first off be aware someone is watching (Wilson staff) and you may get a ticket if you park in Supermarket Carpark Parks for obviously a variety of reasons.
