Ripponburn Lifestyle Village
It s never easy acknowledging that you are
growing old, nor admitting that living on your
own in your own home has become a
struggle for you.
But when there is a superb facility which can
help to make your golden years extremely
enjoyable and enable you to age gracefully ,
then there is no need to look any further in the
Central Otago region than the Ripponburn
Ripponburn Lifestyle Village has many great
features and people soon discover that many of
the wants and needs they have, can be met
through opting to make this the destination for
their new home.
General manager Lois Kircher said that the
small town environment of Ripponburn
Lifestyle Village provides a warm and
Numerous planned outings, a safe environment
and the pleasant company of neighbours all
help the residents to confidently make that
transition away from their own home to this
The proximity of the Ripponburn Lifestyle
Village to the Ripponburn Hospital and Home
also means that while residents can maintain
their independence within the complex s
beautiful setting, they are also able to access
health care as and when needed as well as
having meals provided if required and other
assistance when necessary.
While many more people are opting to make a
lifestyle village their home in their later years,
Mrs Kircher says a constant concern is that
often people often don t make the decision
soon enough to move to the village.
Often their failing health means that they are
not always able to enjoy and participate in
everything that the Village offers, and that s
something we would really like them to benefit
At some stage in their lives most New
Zealanders are affected by cancer.
Whether directly or indirectly,
through a member of the family, a best
friend, a work colleague, or a neighbour,
the cruel tentacles of cancer spread far and
wide and in all cases, have no consideration
for age and shows no mercy.
All too often, the outcome is tinged with
immense sadness yet with the desire to do
something about ending this illness which
comes in so many forms.
Behind all the suffering and offering
support in a variety of ways to families and
individuals is the Cancer Society.
From providing supportive care through to
health promotion and providing funding for
cancer research, the role of the Cancer
Society across Otago and Southland is
varied but crucial.
But they in turn need help to provide the
level of support they do. With no financial
assistance from Government, they rely
heavily on the Community it serves for
Every year, the Cancer
Society needs to raise $2.5m
to maintain their services.
A bequest within a will to the
Cancer Society is an easy way
to support them and the key
to helping the Society to
achieve their objectives.
Including a bequest to the
Cancer Society is a planned
way of giving which suits
many people. While some do not always
have the funds available while they are
alive, they do have assets, and can organise
to leave some of these to the Cancer
Society, through their will, when they pass
The addition of a bequest to a will is very
easy -- and very welcome.
Janie at the Cancer Society is only a phone
call away and can talk to you about making
this decision to support them and about
how you would like this contribution to be
used. Maybe the choice would be to ensure
the money is put to work in your own
Community, or maybe used specifically for
When a bequest to the Cancer Society is
made, it can give people a sense of
peacefulness while providing the Society
with a key source of income when you, or
your family member or friend is no longer
