Carers NZ Website

Do you often assist a family, whänau or aiga member or friend with everyday activities?

You may not see yourself as a “carer” – perhaps it’s just a part of who and what you do. You could be a parent of a disabled child, an older person caring for a sick partner, or a younger person supporting a friend with a mental health condition.

The care you give could be needed suddenly due to injury or illness, or gradually over time as you provide more support for, say, a parent or grandparent who needs assistance.

At some stage in our lives, most of us will care for, or be supported by, someone.

If this sounds like you, then chances are there are services and support on hand to help. Whether you’re new to caring or have supported someone for many
years, visit the Carers NZ Website today.
