Age Concern Hauraki Coromandel is currently looking for volunteers in Thames, Ngatea and Paeroa to visit with seniors in our communities.
Being a volunteer involves being available for social conversation and companionship with an elderly person for a minimum of 1 hour per week.
Age Concern offers an Accredited Visiting Service to the Elderly in the Hauraki and Thames Coromandel. Our aim is to match each elder referred to us with one volunteer visitor with similar interests. As a result of this, we are always looking to recruit volunteers.
I would love to hear from you if you have the time and the desire to make an elderly person feel more appreciated and valued.
Volunteers tell us that they really enjoy getting to know the person they are visiting and some great friendships have flourished through volunteering.
All our volunteers are Police vetted, trained and supported.
Phone Age Concern 07 868 9790 or email jude@ageconcern.gen.nz

As many as one in ten older people in New Zealand will experience some kind of elder abuse. The majority of cases will go unreported.

Elder abuse can be emotional, physical and financial and can have wide reaching effects on victims.

The abuser is often someone close to their victim. It is someone trusted: family members, friends and even neighbours. Abusers are often someone they depend on for support or care.

If you are concerned about elder abuse call the free helpline 0800 EA NOT OK (0800 32 668 65), text 5032 or email support@elderabuse.nz

Remember if it is serious and happening now, call 111
