Presbyterian Support (Enliven) has been named New Zealand’s Most Trusted Aged Care and Retirement Villages Brand.
The accolade comes from the independent, commissioned 2017 Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand Survey.
Respondents highlighted Presbyterian Support (Enliven) for its not-for-profit values, genuine care, honesty, high quality aged care and retirement services and support.
National spokesperson Gillian Bremner says the win is recognition that the organisation’s values and not-for-profit philosophy drives service delivery.
“We’re about people first and foremost. We design, develop and operate quality care homes, retirement villages and home and community support services; with care at the heart of all we do.”
“We focus on creating communities where older people have companionship, variety, fun, a sense of belonging, meaningful activity and purpose in their lives.”
Presbyterian Support’s National Council Chair Maitland Manning, says the recognition was credit to the dedicated, passionate and caring staff.
“Trust is absolutely crucial in aged care,” says Mr Manning.
“The support Enliven staff provide to older people is outstanding. It’s not just knowing and understanding health requirements, it’s truly knowing and understanding the residents and clients, and developing strong relationships with them and those closest to them.
