Come visit and nurture a conversation

Ryman Healthcare Limited

Gathering together during the holidays can lead us to notice changes in our loved ones and their needs, especially if there has been some time between visits.

Starting a conversation about care isn’t always easy but like many things, sometimes you just need to take the first step.

To help nurture those conversations, we invite you to our Care Centre Open Days at your local Ryman village. A tour will give you first-hand experience of our village communities and the exceptional care we provide. Care options include the extra support of a serviced apartment, resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care.

Pipitea Marae

Peter from Island Bay

What happens at Pipitea Marae?
It was built in the late-70's and I never hear about anything happening there. It is promoted as a Function Centre. Have you ever been to a recent event held there?

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
