We are Jan and Marian. Dutch from origine, both over 60 years old, living in New Zealand since 2007. We bought a house with land and workshop in the middle of our community, of nearly 3000m2. We have been renovating this since July 2020. Our dream came through, to prepare this for visitors with mild dementia, based on Dutch models. And we can now say that we have opened and dayvisitors are coming here and live it!
We offer them our place where they feel valued and enjoy their time by using the living space or work in and around the garden and the animals.
We still need lots of help creating a workable garden and workshop and in the house are some finishing touch points to achieve. We try to use recycled materials when possible.
We have a lovely Huntaway dog, Bella a great bunch of chooks and looking into more animals.
And: Yes we had our first Workawayer staying after Covid shut off everything and we had a great time !!

We are Dutch, and the ‘model of care’ is based on the Dutch model of social approach for people with Dementia. We are fully imbedded in the New Zealand culture / community. You might meet interesting people of all kinds. We are nurses as well as artists in: Pallet art, painting, jewellery. We could introduce you to Toastmasters to enhance your public speaking and leadership skills. You can upgrade your garden and DIY skills, or show us yours.
You might be able to help us setting up flyers and other PR material.
We are also grandparents ‘far away’ you might be open to see how we handle this to have good contact with our family oversees.
The base of all we are and do is our christian faith.
As you read certainly no dull moment here.
