Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

The Otago Daily Times newspaper has been heavily criticised for a cartoon it ran in print on Tuesday.

The cartoon by Garrick Tremain depicted two woman walking out of a travel agent, with one saying to the other: "I asked, 'What are the least popular spots at the moment?' She said: 'The ones people are picking up in Samoa.'"

The Samoan Government has completely shutdown its private sector following the deaths of 55 people there, most of whom were children.

What do you think of the cartoon? Do you think it's offensive and inappropriate? Or just a simple, lighthearted joke? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Jordan Tewhaiti-Smith is sometimes asked why he isn't a patched-up member of the Mongrel Mob.

"To be honest I don't think I would fit the facade," the 23-year-old, who is about to graduate as a doctor, said.

Growing-up around the gang – his father and several uncles were members – was a "normal" part of his childhood.

Tewhaiti-Smith is graduating as a doctor on Friday and has already secured a job at Christchurch Hospital.

Congratulations Jordan!
