Friday 11 May 2018 - Mother Day at Maupuia

The lead up to Mother day at Maupuia was ‘full on’ for both staff and residents.  The residents made all the mother day cards for residents and staff members, which made the actual day more special.  While working on making the cards, picking the paper and the verse that when on them, the resident talked about their families, where they had lived during their lives, the locations or hospitals their children were born in.  Now their children are grown up with children of their own a lot of which we meet during the week.  I was for our staff to meet the resident’s family members and grandchildren that they had talked about during the week.  We are so lucky at Maupuia to celebrate Mother’s Day together


We strive to reawaken the fun loving side of our residents

Friday 16 March 2018 - ‘Saint Patricks Day Celebrations’   

 Maupuia turned green for St Patrick’s day, for one of our residents who can’t be in Ireland for St Patrick’s Day. There’s just nothing like it, the whole world goes green to celebrate.  On March 16, UCG Maupuia thrums with energy and excitement for St Patrick’s Day.   So, we all pinned on our shamrocks, added hats, ties and braces plus green moustaches.   It was rather special when our Irish resident started singing the Irish songs that he remembered. Had has an amazing voice, it just bought Maupuia to a standstill while he sung.  The residents tasted and enjoyed the green icing on the cupcakes and round sponge cake that was green inside, they finished the meal with our green punch, both resident, staff and Day-care enjoyed the excitement of the day.

Monday 10 July 2017 -Balloon Noodle Antics’  

 

There are some things we have found at UCG Maupuia that transcend age groups that’s having fun no matter what age you are. We’ve been having resistance from our residents, not wishing to participate in our exercise classes, most residents don’t like to exercise. Today we have managed to change that by introducing ‘Balloon Noodle Antics’.  This has become such a popular game we now play it weekly

 

This game can be played in so many different settings, with many different ability levels, and it is a good exercise. It can be easily graded to work on multiple skills, such as standing and sitting balance, improved respiratory health, upper extremity strength with overhead reaching and hand eye coordination.

 

Our residents normally sit in a circle in the lounge, with their different coloured noodles (they picked their colours).  We then add the 3 balloons and we are off.  We started off with a base core of residents, with the music of Tina Turner ‘Simple the Best’ playing in the back ground.  We found that we double in the number of residents participating as they come out to investigate what was going on.  It was great to see how completive the residents are, the smiles and laugher as they missed or hit the balloons and how they watched and congratulated other residents when they managed to hit the balloons. We run it now on the days that we have our fantastic fun loving day program group.  

 

Balloon Noodle Antics only requires the large 60cm balloons, these are easy to hit, come in bright colours and they bounce, so there are airborne longer.  We have used pool noodles in bright colours cut in half for each team member.

Monday 12 June 2017

Our residents at Ultimate Care Maupuia had a couple of special guests join them on Monday morning to visit the facility and they also help with the group activity, the weekly crossword puzzle.  Annette King, retiring Member of Parliament, chose to stop by the facility who she has visited a number of times throughout her career.  She was joined for the visit by Paul Eagle, Deputy Mayor of Wellington.  They not only help solve the crossword puzzle but gave out the prizes to with winners.  Annette also gave a short but very funny speech about her time in Parliament and introduce her successor Paul Eagle.

 

April 2017

On our recent outing we took Maupuia resident and our Day-care group to the Hall of Memories.  This is at the base of the National War Memorial Carillon tower, which serves as the commemorative chapel of the National War Memorial

Interior and exterior walls

The interior walls were built in stone from the Mount Somers district near Ashburton. The exterior is clad with concrete slabs cast to resemble blocks of Putaruru stone. Soaring columns give a commanding impression of height and beauty.

Stained-glass windows

The stained-glass windows, which create an attractive effect of colour and light, were designed by Pierre Fourmaintraux, an accomplished exponent of unpainted dalle de verre (thick chunks of glass faceted roughly by hammer and set in concrete). They were made by Whitefriars Glass, one of Britain’s oldest window makers.

Recesses

Six recesses, or mini-chapels, flank each side of the hall. Each has its own dedicated plaque of remembrance to armed services in which New Zealanders served. The flags of each service hang immediately above.

Also within the recesses are four mounted wall plaques commemorating the conflicts in South Africa, Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The recess commemorating the Second World War Expeditionary Force contains a three-panelled Māori carving known as Tāhiwi. This was presented by Gallipoli veterans in honour of the Māori Pioneer Battalion.

The sanctuary

The focal point of the hall, sculptor Lyndon Smith's statue Mother and Children, stands within the sanctuary. The statue depicts a wartime family giving one another comfort and hope in the absence of loved ones overseas.

The coats of arms of the nine New Zealand provinces flank the walls above the books. The Lamp of the Brotherhood, dedicated to preserving remembrance and unity, is mounted on the back wall. Carved in stone above the sanctuary are doves of peace and verses from Psalm 139 in the Bible. Two large columns flank the steps to the sanctuary, each bearing engravings of members of the Commonwealth who fought in the two world wars, their coats of arms linked by stylised branches to the Tree of the Commonwealth.

Word's from Laurence Binyon's poem‘ For the Fallen’ are set within bronze on the rear wall of the sanctuary.

Daycare attendees and residents visited the Mount Victoria Look today. Rising 196m above the city, this has been on our must-do list for a while but this trip is defiantly weather dependent. From the lookout we were rewarded with stunning panoramic views of Wellington city and harbor, and beyond.

From the top, we enjoyed the views of Tinakori Hill, the Hutt Valley and Eastern Harbour Bays, Matiu/Somes Island and the Miramar Peninsula. Beyond are Baring and Pencarrow Heads and further to the right, Wellington’s Southern suburbs and Mt Mathews, Wellington’s highest point to the East.

With little wind we, settled in on the hillside and relax while watching ferries and cruise ships sail into the harbour and planes fly in and out of the airport.

Great morning was had by all.

Companionship in Later Life and the Potential Legal Pitfalls

This article was written by Gina Dobson.

We tend to assume that couples in de facto relationships are more likely to be members of the younger generations. Despite this assumption, it is very common for people to enter into new relationships later in life (the desire for companionship could hardly be said to decrease as we age!). However, there are important legal matters regarding property that arise from these new relationships that need serious consideration. 

The law that governs the division of relationship property is the Property (Relationships) Act (“the Act”). Under the Act, when a de facto relationship ends there is a presumption of a 50/50 division of relationship property. This raises a number of questions. Firstly, how do you know if you have a “de facto” relationship? And secondly, what if you don’t feel that a 50/50 division is fair in your situation?  

Whether you have a de facto relationship or not depends on a number of elements that are set out in the Act. Firstly, the Act applies to de facto relationships of three or more years. But determining whether a relationship is de facto or not isn’t just limited to whether you share a bedroom, or what your financial arrangements are. The definition of what makes a de facto relationship is very broad. This is to ensure that the law can allow for the differing ways that people live in their relationships. None of the elements listed in the Act are essential to a de facto relationship – they are all just considerations for the Court to take into account.  

It is not surprising that the 50/50 division can come as a shock and cause huge upset for people. There are many reasons for this. Perhaps you or your partner have children from previous relationships that you wish to provide for. One of you may bring substantial assets, or debts, to a relationship. Or you might have ideas of how you would like specific assets to be distributed on your passing.  

Fortunately, the Act provides an alternative to the 50/50 division scheme in the form of Contracting Out Agreements. In these Agreements, you can set out the rules you would both like to apply to your property if the relationship comes to an end because of separation or death. Having a Contracting Out Agreement in place ensures that there is no misunderstanding on what you both want to happen after you die.  You should be aware that as well as completing an Agreement, you may also need to update your Will so that the terms and conditions of your Agreement are reflected in your Will.   

Contracting Out Agreements are subject to specific requirements under the Act – one of which is that both parties must receive independent legal advice before the agreement is signed. At Harmans we have a specialist Family Law Team and a specialist Seniors Team who can assist with Contracting Out Agreements and Estate Planning. Give Harmans a call on 352 2293 to discuss your legal requirements.

From 1 July 2018, the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (which is quite a mouthful, but “AML” for short) starts applying to all New Zealand law firms – and their clients.  We introduced AML in our April newsletter.  The law is not new as it’s been applied to banks and finance companies since 2013.  But it’s new for lawyers. 

Why?

Globally, good governments want to make it harder for criminals to launder money, and are attempting to restrict the flow of money to terrorist organisations.  AML does this. 

But “that’s got nothing to do with me”, you say?

Almost certainly true.  But there are some in our communities who engage in those activities and, like every other piece of law, in order to catch the bad guys the good guys have to put up with some increased scrutiny.

Why lawyers?

Lawyers are seen as a target for money laundering.  That’s because we transfer properties for you and handle large amounts of your funds.  A criminal could, say, try and put some dirty money into our trust account to buy a house, then a year later sell it, collecting the cash, which would then be cleaned or laundered and so not linked back to their original illegal activity.

We’re not the only ones.  Through 2018 and 2019, we’ll be joined by accountants, real estate agents, sports betting agencies (TAB) and dealers in certain high value items (vehicles, antiques, jewellery, etc).  AML is very far reaching. 

So, what does it all mean for me?

The law says that we have to know all of our clients.  That’s easy, you say.  You’ve been with us for a while – of course we know you!  Not so.  In many ways yes, but AML tells us that we must have proof of your identity when we take instructions from 1 July 2018, such as copies of your ID and documents verifying your address.  If you have a company or trust, we will need more information still.  If you’ve had to open a bank account in the past few years, you’ll know what it’s like having to provide documentation.  The same rules will very shortly apply to us.

So, the next time you come in to see us, or contact us to act for you, our lawyers will need to sight your ID and proof of address.  It’s called CDD – Customer Due Diligence, so if we tell you that we need to conduct CDD, that’s what we’re talking about.

We’ll likely ask for that required information the next time we see you (closer to, and from, 1 July), even if we might already hold some of it.  If you have difficulty producing some of what we ask for, please talk to us.  If, for example, you don’t have a passport or photo ID driver’s licence, there may be other ways we can meet our AML obligations.

We’ll make it all just as easy for you as we can, but we do need your co-operation.  If we’re unable to complete our required CDD, we are by law unable to continue to work with you, and we wouldn’t want that.

For more information on all this exciting AML stuff feel free to contact your usual Corcoran French lawyer, or our AML Compliance Officer

THERE'S MORE TO COME AT A METLIFECARE VILLAGE

There’s a generation of New Zealanders who have known all along that to make is not just fun but meaningful. These are the people who are enjoying life and continuing to make and create in their homes, garages and workshops, in vibrant places like Metlifecare retirement villages.

Here’s a sweet story of how a group of residents at Metlifecare’s The Orchards village became high-tech bakers! https://youtu.be/GcB0dzuqtEc
