Friends of Resthaven Foundation
The Friends of Resthaven Foundation's focus is to fundraise for services, care options and aged-care education for the Cambridge and Waipa/Matamata/Piako communities.
The needs of the older person are changing as people live longer and social norms place a greater focus on moving away from facility care to active, independent living. Families are more dispersed and therefore have less capacity to provide support to older members of their family, and the gap between available funding and peoples needs is ever growing.
The emphasis is on making facilities and services accessible and affordable, wherever a person chooses to live - in a retirement village, rest home or in the wider community. Quite simply, we want to give our older community members choice.
