Other ways to help

Donations and volunteers mean a lot of us, but there are other ways of helping our cause.

Paid Work

Age Concern organises landscaping services, home support services and trades services to assist older people with housework, gardening and home maintenance. Occasionally we require new people to fill these roles and this will be advised below.  All home support workers are police vetted, interviewed by Age Concern Canterbury and are referee checked as well. Remuneration is on an hourly rate or by quotation.

A Will is a formal record of your wishes and of the way you want your assets distributed. It is a very important and necessary legal document which must be prepared and signed according to strict rules to be effective. You should seek help about this. If you die without making a Will, your estate (your money and property) will be divided between your near relatives in proportions fixed by law, which may not be what you wanted.

If you wish to make a gift of all or part of your estate to a specific organisation like Age Concern Rotorua this is called a Bequest. This may take the following forms:

  • A percentage or financial portion of your estate
  • A specific asset(s) such as property or shares
  • A cash legacy

Leaving a bequest to Age Concern Rotorua will directly help older people enjoy a full life for more than your lifetime. If you wish to leave a Bequest or you are assisting someone who wants to leave a Bequest, please contact us either through our website, email or call us at 07 347 1539.

Social Activities

We organize activities and events to help those who need healthy social contact. Our volunteers provide a positive and stimulating environment that encourages participation and creates renewed confidence, happiness and lasting relationships with both our volunteers and our elderly.
