This category was about recognising those who made sure the physical environment they provided was especially elder-friendly. The winner was Enliven Presbyterian Support Service’s facility for their Harakeke and Totara Day Programmes. For those who haven’t seen it, this facility offers a carefully planned venue and environment to act as home for the day for older people living with frail health and/or dementia or alzheimers. These people still live in their own homes but the service Harakeke & Totara provide often gives the carers and families time out from the demands that a high level of care can require. Great forward planning and understanding the needs of older people has resulted in safe, secure, comfortable lounges and a friendly kitchen and dining area, both of which open onto a beautiful fenced garden area with shade sails and social seating. This venue is welcoming and provides perfectly for it’s users. Well done Presbyterian Support Services
