    Before we brought our new unit/house we looked at retirement villages in our area.
    Lack of privacy was what put us off most of them.
    We brought our new house, for what an old refurbished villa would have cost us.
    Perhaps in 10 years time when I am 80 we may have to look at retirement/care again.
    I note the wife's uncle stayed in his own home, where he died at age 94.Social services provide a lot of help/care to keep people in their own home.
    But paying $1,000 to $1,300 to live in a very old home,that stinks of boiled cabbage, does not appeal to me,however if I should have a stroke or get further demented, that will be my lot.

    So the $140 per day OCA charge is reasonable.ie $980 per week.

    My Mum, just turned 90, is still living in her own small home that Mum and Dad built to retire in. She counts the trucks going to Napier port for me.
    Yes...she gets a fair bit of help now....but on balance its working out.
    Its just fine until something goes wrong....a fall, sickness etc.
    So far so good.

    Cabbage is nothing think urine and poo in the heat of summer, from unchanged nappies some the time because of the understaffing and a few neglecting to do it.

    Eww! Compact portable air conditioners are the answer there. But still not a life-style I would gladly choose.

    On the few i checked there was a lot of big volumes on the close. My guess is some portfolio rearrangements rather than insightful buying. Even SKT TV was up 3c on the close.

    You really should think before you open that mouth of yours and make blanket and offensively inaccurate statements like that

    As a rest home caregiver I resent your disrespectful (to both residents and staff) comment. If you were standing next to me I’d bitch-slap you!

    Come and visit our rest home and talk to our residents. Yes, we are all understaffed but we don’t neglect anyone and we definitely do not leave anyone sitting in soiled incontinence products “all the time” - or “any of the time.”

    Unbelievable

    The fees all vary by Geographical area and if your not a private payer your only really paying your pension minus the $80 odd bucks a fortnight you get for pocket money so quite cheap for fully catered care.

    A large player, or larger groups of players have perhaps warmed to the sight of retirement villages I think after seeing all the long term data.

    My "threat of violence" was an emotional reaction to your nasty comment about rest homes, and not serious, as you know full well. I am passionate about my job.it is one of the most under valued and under appreciated jobs, and I get defensive when people like you make disrespectful, generalised claims about the care our elderly receive.Yes, there are some carers who should not be working in the area, but the vast majority of us put everything we have into our jobs and we 100% care about our residents. If you (and others) are so disgusted with the care provided, why on earth would you ever invest in the sector?

    I apologise for my bitch slap comment, but you are wrong about me. Every resident I care for is important to me. I care about each and every one of them. They are treated with respect, compassion and love. Always.

    A very unfair and uncalled for comment

    A bitch slap sounds just the ticket in this case.

    May I suggest we get back to the business of comparing retirement village companies and their merits.
    I see SUM has made some good announcements this morning
    No butts, hold no mutts, (unless they're the furry variety).

    Accepted and im sure you do.And as i noted staff are overworked so cant always pickup on an aroma from residents in their lazyboys on wheels as they rush past a room call ,way down the corridor . Sadly at the care place i visit most of the long term carers and nurses who had been there a long time and who had a calling to do this work left when new management came in. Very different now. I have also been told by a carer at one place Adult nappies are issued at a two a day limit and she has had to sneak another one for a resident.

    Sounds like you need a patch, plenty of gangs out there, who disrespect women as well.
