Hello Carers and Happy New Year Haven’t the Pohutakawa flowers been brilliant this year.
There is some sad news in the February/March Newsletter. Caring for Carers in Christchurch has folded, leaving family carers in Canterbury without direct carer support. Fortunately another agency has said they can fill the gap. Read more about it in the FEBRUARY/MARCH newsletter on this website or in the newsletter mailed out to you soon.
Carers’ Society Otago supports family/whanau carers with one on one support and with 6 support groups throughout Otago, beginning in February/March 2018. These meetings are held in Dunedin, North Otago, Alexandra and the Milton/Balclutha area.
Check the events page of this website or the FEBRUARY/MARCH newsletter for times dates and venues.
We have an Information Hub and the Jennie Clegg lending library in our Carers Lounge. Come up for a cuppa and a biscuit.
There is also a free wheelchair loan scheme. We have two wheelchairs available at the moment.
In fact, all of our services are free to carers.
