Kia Ora Koutou Katoa (Be well everyone)

Nga mihi mahana ki a koutou (Warm greeting to you all)

July was a quiet month for me and included a week of annual leave, so I painted a roof. Yes, painting in July (we needed to prepare for solar panels installation). Well that never happened, as we discovered a quarter of the garage roof framing was rotten and needed replacement. Oh well, I’m sure you’ve found the same about life in general; once you start a job there’s always more to be done than meets the eye.

Working with Tamariki and Mokopuna (Children and Grandchildren) is much the same. Tamariki coming to us for whatever reason, sometimes unexpectedly, other times with some warning. We are not always well prepared for what they present to us emotionally, mentally or physically. If you are struggling with an issue, please make contact via email or phone. I’m here to support you and help you.


Please register to attend our Caregiver training workshops held twice a term in Whangarei and once a term in Kaikohe and Kaitaia. These are good times of reflection, networking and new learning. Although the topics are serious we do try to fit in some fun and share from the heart, we’d love to see you there. Our first workshop is Understanding Maltreatment (click here for training description) on 8 August in Whangarei. Please register here for one of our workshops or contact Christine on 0800 100 849 if you require assistance.

Tiaki koutou I a koutou (Take care of yourselves)
