Howick’s only boutique retirement village, HBH Senior Living, has two apartments available for sale at 139 Union Road, Howick. Well-positioned, both apartments enjoy an open plan living space that flows to a modern kitchen with quality appliances and ample storage. The master bedroom has easy access to a well-designed disability-friendly bathroom. Situated on the top floor, both apartments have a balcony and enjoy the afternoon sun. 139 on Union offers a close community of 42 apartments with an emphasis on friendship, care and support. With Rest Home and Hospital level care and a Day Programme on site you can have the best of both worlds: the freedom to live independently and the reassurance that help is on hand should you need it.

My 1st experience of lockdown. A Day in The Life of Knox I am happy to be part of Elizabeth Knox. When the first time I did a survey of the work location, from the start I have already “feels home”. There was another interview that I did. But I really hope in EKHH. Praise the Lord, I was accepted to work at Cater Plus and work at EKHH. My first workday was the starting of lockdown NZ Level 4. There was anxious in my heart, but I tried to make sure that I stay healthy while staying around elderly people. And I also had to make sure my family (husband and children) in healthy condition so that I will not bring virus while working at EKHH. There was a worry while preparing isolation room. And I really hoped there will be no Covid19 case in EKHH, and praise the Lord there is none until today. The benefit while in alert 4 or 3 is during shopping in grocery. Initially I must stay in queue for 1 hour, but after that I am working in hospital it is not necessary anymore by just showing my ID (even though I am just cleaner and not a care Partner). So far there is no issue when showing logo of EKHH. I tried to explain that I am working at hospital. No need to queue. Yeaaaayyyy it is exciting. Since lockdown start, my daily activity is only working at EKHH, go home, and do grocery shopping twice a week. Praise the Lord that we have pass all of this and entered Level 2. Everyone is in good state. I am happy to be part of EKHH family. All residences are kind. Leader and staff of EKHH are also kind and appreciate my work. This made me more motivated to work. Same thing also with care Partner, kitchen team, maintenance team, and laundry team. Every team member is helping each other. All of these have made me feel that EKHH is my second home.

Do you know what the role of NZ Super is? Is what many still call ‘the pension’ there to ensure dignity in old age? Is it there to provide a basic standard of living? Or is it a reward for working hard and paying taxes? If you can’t decide, you are not alone – even …
A Will is a document that needs to be reviewed regularly as personal circumstances change. There are, however, certain events which make it absolutely essential to update a Will. For example, a Will is automatically revoked if a person marries or enters into a civil union unless the Will was made in contemplation of that marriage or civil union. Likewise, if a marriage or civil...
Many people put off making a Will, almost as if to do so is acknowledgement of one’s own mortality. Consider, though, what might happen if a person dies without a current or valid Will. If a person dies without a current or valid Will he or she is said to have died ‘intestate’ and their estate will be settled according to the provisions of the Administration Act 1969....
