An exciting new development
in Aged Residential Care
is due to open in Feilding
early in 2013. The Ranfurly Manor
owner, Tom Brankin, is developing
a new facility which will offer a
range of care provision within the
one facility, something that has
not previously been available in
Ranfurly Manor's new facility will
provide all options of care:
The external 'licence to occupy'
• (LTO) two bedroom units
One or two bedroom LTO
apartments within the main
facility (level 2 care)
Dementia (stage 3) level care
• Continuing (hospital level) care
With 160 beds the new complex will
be three times the size of the current
Nelson St facility. This includes a
50% increase in the number of beds
for residents requiring continuing
The six independent units in
Derby Street, will be separate
from the main entrance in
Monmouth Street and within
walking distance to town. They will
be an attractive option for people
who want to make their decision
to move long before they need
permanent residential care.

Resolving your resolutions
Have a go: Make one of your New Year resolutions the challenge to try something new.
Quit it: There is some extra incentive
this new year to give up smoking -- the
price is increasing from January 1.
By LAURA WALTERS
It s that time of year again. The
time of year when everyone thinks
up resolutions for the new year,
with only the slightest intention of
sticking to them.
This year why not try something
Set yourself a resolution that can
be carried out locally, and maybe
even something that could help
Here are a few suggestion:
Become a volunteer
Manawatu, and the Rangitikei
District, have a range of opportunity
shops such as Manchester House,
Salvation Army, and Red Cross,
which are always looking for eager
And if you do not have time to
volunteer, perhaps you could donate
clothes, toys, or bric-a-brac to a local
If you are a smoker, then give
quitting a go. From January 1
cigarettes will go up in price by 10
per cent, so now is a great time to
break the habit.
MidCentral DHB health pro-
motion adviser Julie Beckett said
quitting was a double bonus .
You get to save about $100 a
week, and kick the habit.
To help people quit, the DHB was
offering free summer packs with
nicotine replacement therapy.
The packs are available from Tat-
tons Unichem Pharmacy Feilding,
along with other pharmacies in the
Try a new recipe every week
If you like to cook, but usually
stick to the same old recipes take a
leaf out of the book, and now suc-
cessful movie, Julie and Julia and
give some new recipes a go.
Whether it s a new summer salad,
some holiday baking, or an exotic
dish from another country, try a
new recipe every week.
Join a sports club
New Year s resolutions usually
include losing weight.
Rather than trying to diet with
delicious holiday food taunting you,
try upping your exercise load.
The district is home to a number
of sports clubs and grounds.
Try your local golf club, squash
club, aquatic centre, and tennis
clubs offer grounds and camaraderie
for those who want to get active in
the new year.
Adopt a pet
While it is not something to be
taken lightly, if you are in need of
some company or your family is
dying for a puppy, think about
adopting a pet.
The Feilding SPCA has cats and
dogs for adoption, as does the
Greyhound as Pets adoption organ-
isation stationed on State Highway
One between Sanson and Bulls.
Adopting a pet is a big commit-
ment, so you should always do your
research, and make sure you have
plenty of time to spend with the
animal. But it is a fantastic way to
give an animal a chance.
Plant a tree
With environmental problems
facing us at every turn, help out in
your own way by planting trees.
Check with the council before you
go digging and planting in the
middle of the local sports field, but
keep your eyes peeled for an area
that needs some more greenery.
Holding a group planting is a
great way to make the manual
labour of planting seedlings go
faster, or join in with councils or
community groups when they hold

planting in the area contact
