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.”
Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with a double major in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina went on a 3-month indigenous knowledge exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”
Open your mind too! Study with us in 2020
Our Space programme has 22 first time parents and their babies wanting to join a support group and we would like to begin in the next couple of weeks. We know there will be more and would really like to be able to support them. Being for first time parents they only have one chance to attend these programmes. These parents want to be the best parents that they can be and we would like to assist them. Not only does the programme support their first baby but also any future children. We have trained facilitators to lead the groups but they need a support person with them. Ideally we do not like to have more than 15 new parents and babies in a group as this enables each person to receive the support and encouragement that they need. It is great for each of them to be able to share any issues for them and to know that they need. Both the facilitators and attendees really enjoy the sessions and get a lot out of it both the giver and the recipient. Main criteria to be involved is to like people and to want to be able to support others resulting in a stronger community.
