Kia ora everyone,

This year continues to steam ahead and we’re now in November! The best thing is having longer days and warmer weather, most of the time.

Are you aware that we are now offering online learning options for caregivers? No matter where you live, you can register and join from the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you or for our scheduled online face to face sessions. This month we have Keeping Memories and Understanding the National Care Standards.

Canterbury Regional Coordinator Update:

Due to some organisational changes and demands, we have restructured the Lower South Island. As a result, we are increasing the Canterbury Regional Coordinator’s hours to 35 hours per week to meet the needs of our members in this region. 

Recruitment has just begun, so if you’d like to know more about this position, please email Jennifer Hansen on jenniferh@caringfamilies.org.nz for a job description.

Now that we have a plan with the Canterbury RC position, I’m stirring up the troops again and will be meeting with our wonderful Regional Committee Members to plan events and times of connection with caregivers and their families. We will let you know the details once we have finished planning. Summer is just a great time to do some get togethers.

Whakawhetai mo te manaaki / Thanks for Caring,
