On 28 February 2022, Resthaven acquired the award-winning Chiton Retirement Living village to add to Resthaven’s suite of options for older people.
Located at 2 Ocean Road, Chiton Retirement Living features 29 modern architectural homes, in a beautiful location, nestled between Port Elliot and Victor Harbor. Chiton has won a number of awards for its first-class homes, however, it is the people who reside here that make this location what it is.
Resident, Marg Dent, has been a proud member of the Zonta Club of Fleurieu Peninsula since 1978, advocating for women’s rights across the world.
Marg says, ‘I feel passionate about this project and I’m happy that I can be involved in something that supports women, and men, who go through breast cancer surgery.’
‘These patients have undergone extensive surgery, then have to endure the post-operative process, which can be difficult.’
‘During the healing phase, the cushions have a very comforting effect on patients, especially when sleeping. When placed under a seatbelt, the cushioning eases the pain when travelling. Tucked inside a blouse, or shirt, protects you from bumps and elbows when shopping.’
‘Our club provides between 300-400 cushions to the Flinders Medical Centre each year, and we have been making them for approximately 24 years. Each package includes a small, handwritten card to wish them well in their recovery.’
Marg saw an opportunity to bring this awareness to her community at Resthaven Chiton Retirement Living, further extending the Zonta Club of Fleurieu Peninsula.
‘Management and fellow residents were pleased for us to hold our cutting out days at the Lakehouse here at Chiton, for which we are very appreciative.’
‘The community here is unlike any other.’
Resthaven Chiton Retirement Living is a place where you can live an enviable retirement without compromise to style, comfort, independence, space, or environment.
