Our residents are not shy or retiring. They live their lives with passion and purpose. They strive to push further, create better, and go beyond the ordinary. We are pioneering a new way to live in retirement. One with flexibility, certainty, and the ability to dial care up and down as you need it.
Ryman has been pioneering retirement living for 35 years. Our New Zealand and Australian villages are named after trailblazers: Sir Edmund Hilary, Weary Dunlop, Rita Angus, Nellie Melba. We always have, and always will, challenge the status quo and adapt to better serve our residents.
Hey neighbours, are you seeing and hearing a lot more of your neighbours during the lockdown? Has it helped you get to know them better - from an acceptable social distance - or is the noise of everyone being home together all the time getting to you?
Now more than ever it's up to all of us to try not to annoy our neighbours, and to be more tolerant ourselves, so here are some easy ways to do just that.
And if you're wondering what makes a good neighbour and what makes a bad one, check out the 12 most annoying neighbour types. How many have you lived next to?
We have all heard the Govt saying, "there is no shortage of food & there is no price gouging." however I can't say I'm seeing evidence to support either statement as every time I got to the store, something is marked up higher than what it was before The Lockdown and there are always rows of empty shelves.
In regards to that, I notice a lot of the time the healthier options of food are often cleaned out the fastest. Such as alternative baking goods like almond flour and non-sugar sweeteners. I wonder if those who have specific dietary needs or diseases that prevent them from having all the always readily available sugary and carb loaded stuff that is seemingly always stocked, are getting what they need.
I'd like to hear back if you have a special dietary need, not just a preference. And if you are finding it in stock or if it is always, or often gone when you get there.
Is this a real problem, should the government look at a special shopping window similar to what "essential workers" just got? So that those in real need have the opportunity before those who don't do.
I'd also like to know for those of us who do go out to the shops, if something isn't there, are you going back again and again in the hopes to find it?
What are y'all's thoughts on this?
