“I wanted to come and live at here at Glenhaven Rest Home. I feel I HAVE A NEW LEASE OF LIFE since coming to live here. I had always wanted to ride on a motorcycle so a trip was arranged on a motorbike to Devonport. I have a video of my adventures that I can show at family gatherings with laughter. I am making new memories and trying new things.” JM -RESIDENT
