CHAPLAIN'S COMMITMENT MERITS AWARD
Chaplain Clare Brockett's work with rest home residents on the
subjects of death and dying has been recognised at this year's
Presbyterian Support Central Quality and Innovation Awards.
Clare, who works at three Enliven rest homes
in the Wellington area, won the award for
Demonstrable Improvement to the Lives of
Residents after running a six-week Death and
Dying Workshop for residents at Longview
Home in Tawa.
The workshop gave residents the chance
to share their thoughts and feelings about
the end-of-life process in a supportive
environment. It also gave residents and their
families a chance to learn about the variety of
options available to them at this time.
Other Wellingtonians honoured at the recent
awards included volunteers Rae Crooks and
Rae has been volunteering at Enliven's
Longview Home in Tawa for 27 years, often
taking residents grocery shopping or
Peter, who volunteers at Enliven's Cashmere
Home in Johnsonville, has helped establish a
native plant-propagating programme, with
residents planting and watering seedlings in
their greenhouse. The plants are later taken to
nearby Seton Nossiter Park.
These initiatives are part of our Enliven Positive
Ageing philosophy, which works to combat
loneliness, helplessness and boredom in older
people's lives. At Enliven, we believe in focusing
on what people can do with their lives -- rather
than what they can't do.
Enliven staff and volunteers work to make sure
older people can keep enjoying the things they
love -- whether it's a favourite activity, a hobby,
a task that makes them feel useful, or time
spent with pets.
Enliven offers a wide range of services
throughout the Wellington region. Whether
you're looking for practical home help,
retirement villas, or rest home, hospital-level or
dementia care, Enliven has a service to suit you.

Newlands residents will soon have a new-
look shopping centre with an upgrade
planned over the coming months.
The New World supermarket development
is well under way and work is about to start
on the adjacent council-owned McMillan
Court car park and mall area.
The $1 million makeover should improve
the look and feel of the area and revitalise
the outdated shopping centre.
It is expected to take about five months.
The work is part of the Newlands centre
plan that was developed over several years
after consultation from the community.
The aim is to provide better quality public
spaces and amenities and is part of the long-
term vision for Newlands.
Local retail worker Samantha Densdon
said people were generally really positive
about the proposed upgrade.
People were looking forward to the new
supermarket, she said.
The new-look car park will have a court-
yard area next to the supermarket entrance,
more trees and native plants, better lighting,
new seats, bike racks and public toilets.
There will be terraced gardens at the
Bracken Rd entry.
The mall improvements, which will hap-
pen once the car park is well under way, will
include new lights, paving and landscaping.
Iona Pannett, Wellington City Council s
built environment spokeswoman, said there
would be some noise and inconvenience
while the developments took place. She said
the council would liaise with contractors to
minimise the disruption.
We hope residents and business
operators will see the benefits and bear with
us over the next few months while we get the
work done, she said.
