Kia ora Upper South

I want to take this opportunity to encourage any caregivers that would like to attend this year’s National Conference in Christchurch to have a look at the website for details. This is a great opportunity for the South Island, as we don’t have it down here very often and the quality of the Key Note speakers are world class.

I am encouraged by the number of people that are attending coffee groups and workshops this last term. I enjoy the comradery and the shared experiences and new knowledge that these get togethers provide.

Check out the upcoming dates for support groups for July and trainings for next term. Join the facebook groups and please give me some feedback as to whether you find the things I post are of interest, or what you would like to see posted.
