"It felt right from the start...You really couldn’t find a more convenient place." Eva Furlong Oakden Estate
Eva Furlong had no intention of moving but since discovering ECH’s Oakden Estate she quickly changed her mind and hasn’t looked back.
Receiving an invite to the launch of our newest retirement living village, Eva was encouraged by her son to take a look. “Well, I went and had a look and it went from there,” she says, smiling.
“It felt right from the start,” Eva says. “I’ve got a bus stop right here, a big shopping centre across the road. You really couldn’t find a more convenient place.” After her husband passed away, Eva found she needed assistance with the lawn and garden, and all the extra things he used to do. While she can manage around the house, the added benefit of maintenance and grounds support at Oakden Estate means that she no longer has to worry about the extras.
The contemporary design and layout of the village and her new villa also won over both her sons, one a policeman and the other a paramedic. “They were impressed with the safety and security of the estate as well as with the wide doorways and open spaces which makes things easier for emergency services personnel”. Eva says, although she is well and able now, the design of the villa is perfect for a time when she might need a little bit of assistance with her independence. “I said to my son as I walked in, ‘This is it,’” she recalls. “I’ve not been sorry since.”
