Residents of Reevedon Home and Village dressed to impress and danced the night away at the inaugural Reevedon Rave last month.

Enliven’s Reevedon Home in Levin hosted their very own winter wonderland themed event, which was attended by 80 people.

Gloria Hakkens attended the Reevedon Rave with her mum and dad, Reevedon Home and Village residents Betty and Stan Goston, and says the night was one to remember.

“It was so beautiful, my sister and I helped mum get ready and dad came over to pick her up – all dressed up with his red bow tie,” says Gloria.

“They used to go to dances together when they were younger so it was so special for them. It has been a highlight of mum and dad’s time at Reevedon.”

The entertainment was a hit among guests, with performances from ballroom dancers, singers, and Reevedon’s very own hand chime group, The Reevedon Ringers.

“The entertainment was absolutely fantastic, it was such a great evening,” says Gloria.

Joanna Thomson, manager of Reevedon Home and Levin Home for War Veterans, says the Reevedon Rave was a special event that brought joy to everyone who attended.

“What was most satisfying for me was seeing the residents and their family members enjoying the occasion,” Joanna explains.
“I’m extremely proud of the team and all the work they put into it, and we are very lucky to have such wonderful community support in Levin.”

Reevedon Home and Village are operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provide independent retirement living and rest home care in the heart of Levin.

Reevedon’s sister-site, Levin Home for War Veterans, provides hospital, dementia and health recovery care in Levin.
