If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 like a cough, fever, shortness of breath, sneezing or a runny nose, you should call your Doctor or Medical Centre.
If you or someone you know needs help to access food, groceries, heating or other essentials, we can help via our 0800 884 222 call centre for Bay of Plenty residents. Anyone can call us between 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week. This service is intended for those that are especially vulnerable or that can’t get help through their family, friends or usual support networks. This includes older people, those that are disabled or unwell, those that are facing financial hardship, live in isolated areas, and/or that have limited internet or transport access.
If you feel you are not coping, it is important to talk to a professional. For support with grief, anxiety, distress or mental wellbeing, you can call or text 1737 – free, anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – to talk with a trained counsellor.
Age Concern Tauranga Incorporated is a not-for-profit organisation that works for the rights and well-being of older people. Along with a network of 35 Age Concern offices across New Zealand, and a national office, we inform and advocate, and provide services to older people.
Age Concern Tauranga Inc became a registered charity on 12th June 2008 (Regn # CC25758) under the Charities Act 2006.
To provide services and support for the wellbeing of older people in our community.
Older People live in a valued life in an inclusive society.
Positive ageing is about making the most of the benefits of being older, learning to adapt to life changes. People age well when they contribute and participate in society with respect and support from their families and the community.
