Until the nation moves to at least alert level 2, elderly people will not have the freedom to do many of the daily tasks we take for granted. And the risk to their health and wellbeing will increase.
Enliven’s Wellbeing Assistance team are making sure the older people in your community have everything they need to be well.
We are finding that they need the most practical items:
- Personal hygiene products, including continence products
- Heaters and warm clothing as winter sets in
- Personal safety alarms (in case of a fall, they can instantly request help)
- Regular phone calls for companionship and safety
You can ensure that food and essential supplies are delivered to older people in your community.
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

International travellers flying into New South Wales are now paying A$3000 (NZ$3168) for their two-week stint in hotel quarantine. Travellers will be charged A$3000 for one adult, A$1000 for each additional adult and A$500 per child aged three and over. Children under three will stay free of charge. Do you think Kiwis should be charged for their isolation costs? Nzwww.stuff.co.nz...
