When I came here I reckoned you don't have to die to go to heaven!
Of course, being an intolerant sort of person, I found some residents not easy to take to, but as I said you can choose how much you socialise.
And unlike villages where you buy in, rental allows you to move into a higher level of care easily if you need to. I hope not to, that I can see my days out here. :happy-sunshine:

The company which owns and manages the Garden Villages, mine being one of them, is ING.
They have 26 villages, in the eastern States and WA.
I personally know of Marsden Gardens in S.E. Qld.

Mavis, after reading your post, I was struck by the fact that your Lady, sounds just like a lady I knew a few years ago. It was so sad!
She was a very intelligent woman, and because of her obesity, She was put into a nursing home by her daughters.
Her friends find it hard to visit her, as the place hasn't got proper parking, and they have to walk a long way to get in. As the friends are mainly old too, it is very difficult.
I might add, the daughters are not without blame. One had a drug problem, and caused her Mother a lot of stress.
The other one wasn't all that helpful either, rarely getting in touch with her Mother.
I HATE nursing homes!!!!
I used to take part on "Do Care" and take some residents out to lunch or a picture show when I was younger, and saw how they lived. Not good!
I am quite determined to stay in my own home!

Sorry Trishia I just found this.
I think you re right. Stay in your home. Our friend seems to have won her battle.
She is moving out!!!!
She is going back to her own home.
Her daughter ( the only one supporting her decision) will get a carers allowance. This girl for many reasons is hard to employ. So I hope it will work out.
Lets say its very hard to get out of a nursing home but she did it!!
Rest of family not happy.
