Age Concern NZ is a charitable organisation dedicated to the wellbeing and dignity and respect of elderly people. They exist to help older people get what they need. Stephanie Clare is the Chief Executive overseeing the organisation throughout the whole country. Lillian got in touch with them last week as they were urging people to continue to support our elderly communities at this time...

Age Concern Auckland is concerned that vulnerable older people living alone are putting themselves at risk by venturing out during the Covid-19 lockdown to get groceries, visit the bank or to collect medications. Please remember not to do this. Please where you can, ring someone and ask them to go instead. Or, if you can’t, ring Age Concern and they will organise this for you. Numbers for Auckland are:

Central & West Auckland – 820 0184

South Auckland - 279 4331

North Shore – 489 4975

You can also email Age Concern Auckland on ageconcern@ageconak.org.nz
