A word with Nina

Nina Lunn recently rejoined our team when she began as the Manager at Holmdene Enliven Care Home in Balclutha.

Nina spent five years as the Manager at Elmslie House in Wanaka, between 2011 and 2016. She has lived in Wellington since then and was excited to have the opportunity to return to the region.

“I rejoined Presbyterian Support Otago for several reasons, but largely because of the ethos and quality of care. Many providers talk about ‘person centred care’. Enliven truly walks that talk, and I wanted to be a part of that again. You don’t know how good you are!”

Nina is currently adjusting to living in Balclutha, and acknowledges that moving from the large city of Wellington to South Otago has been a big change. She believes it’s important to live locally and to become part of the community.

“I also have family in Dunedin and Central Otago, so will be visiting often, weather permitting! I am a bit of a shopaholic, so some return visits to Wellington will be on the agenda. I’ll also get to see my daughter Ruby, who is still there.”

Nina has high praise for the Holmdene team “The willingness to truly help, without judgement, and the commitment the team has, collectively, to do the best they can is fantastic.”

Welcome back to the region and the team, Nina!
