Appreciation post

The Team from North Shore, Rodney & West Auckland Police

Thank you to all our essential service workers working tirelessly to ensure our communities are kept safe.

Issac is 81years old and was observed by a member of the public struggling to walk to the supermarket. A quick interaction with Isaac revealed he was in need of some intervention.

Community Constable Reuben Boniface ?‍♂️ was able to connect Issac with Age Concern Southland and with their assistance provide a care package of cooked meals and loaves of bread to help him through this time ? #kindnessgoesalongway

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

In times like these, I’m grateful for an alternative.

🌼Balancing work and life is difficult, but it can be done. That's why many people choose to work from home if possible. But many think that because you don't leave home, you don't have a real career. This is especially the case for mums.

🌼Hi, I’m Anthea, I have a background in healthcare, a mum of 2 and have been enjoying working part time from home for the past 2 years. It’s been absolutely life changing!

🌼When we went into lockdown, I was interesting to see how my online business would hold up during these unprecedented times and it has been pleasantly rewarding for many of us.

🌼You see, I started working this business because I wanted an extra income and more time at home. I’m thankful now because my hubby is out of work due to this situation however my business is still ticking over. It’s so relieving.

🌼And in times like these, when everyone is home, I make sure to implement my (Work At Home Mum) schedule into four sections:

- Family time
- Business time
- Household time
- Me time

🌼The pro’s, since the kids are home is that we implemented a learning curriculum on household chores before their devices come out. They will be A+ students before this lock down is over.
