Anglican Living are unable to evict those of us with an ORA, and have said that we will continue to be looked after, but there will be no nursing staff, no catering, and the option of moving to the rest home or hospital is no longer there. Some residents have spouses in care, and now find that they will be separated.
Anglican Living sold you a particular package and, in my eyes, they are reneging on a considerable part of that deal. To me, it would appear to be ‘breach of contract’ and I strongly recommend Desi that you get in touch with a lawyer with the expertise to deal with this type of matter. Your local Citizens Advice Bureau can direct you to a free lawyer who will give you the initial guidance on what step to take next. After that initial guidance, you will probably have to pay for a lawyer.
I sincerely wish you all the very best in this. As you say, it is an awful lot for you to have to deal with so soon after losing Dr L but, you will cope. You are surrounded by people who will give you good advice and professional people who can steer you in the right direction. We often feel as if we are alone, but we never are.

I’m at a loss as to what to make of your situation. I find it hard to imagine the Anglican organisation being so dishonest. I wonder if the Anglican congregation is aware of what is being done in their name. I hope that the Citizens Advice or Grey Power are able to help as I believe that publicity of this situation would be a major factor in generating a more realistic outcome for you and others in your situation. This coming in the wake of the Cathedral decision seems to be very fortuitous as far as publicity and comparison of outcome.
I can only offer sympathy at this stage and look forward to being able to keep up with your progress for hopefully a fairer outcome for you and your mother. Please keep us up to date with what’s happening when you are able and is appropriate. (No doubt there will be efforts to muzzle you and those in similar situations.)

Desi, you have my full sympathy with your predicament and like you, think the wasting of so much money on an old stone church as shameful and not what I thought Christianity is all about. I wish you every sucess with a solution for yourself and mum.#1691989joybelMemberMember since: November 2, 2006

Sorry to hear of your problem with the Church, Desi. I think you will still be entitled to the same care as many of us are. It-was a brilliant set up there though. Get in touch with Age Concern to see what your options are. How many tenants are there being treated so badly, perhaps your local M.P. or the Mayor could step in to offer an alternative solution. Your doctor may be able help as well. As a pensioner you are entitled to the same care as the rest of us. Meals on wheels or other meal delivery caterers are available. I find frozen meals at New World and Countdown great to have in the freezer when faced with the pots and pans pans and stuff becomes scary. Hope a solution is on the horizon.#1692024vale019MemberMember since: August 20, 2012

Hi Desi – my heart goes out to you and your Mum. I am appalled at the way you are all being treated by the cold-hearted, uncaring people in this organisation.
As if you don’t have enough to contend with!
I can only wish you both the very best and good luck for a satisfactory outcome.#1693285TedE August 29, 2018 at 4:25 pm
This may not work for you Desi, but i found it interesting and hopeful.

Has anyone had any dealings with Bloom? They are a retirement complex where you buy the property and it is not owned by any organisation. There is a maintenance cost as in other retirement places, but when you come to sell the place the profit it yours. You also only have to be 55 or over to own one.

Hi TedE. I don’t really know much at all about Bloom. I saw that they were advertising an apartment complex not too far from where I live. It sounded good that the purchaser actually owns the building and not a large corporation. I have not looked into it, but the apartment that I saw advertised was $599,00.00 for a 2 bedroom unit.
They have a website if you want to follow it up: bloomliving.co.nz There is an on-line brochure that you are able to download, so hopefully that will contain all of the information that you are looking for.
I hope that this is of help to you.
