Description

Age Concern Auckland is committed to promoting wellbeing, rights, respect and dignity for older people. Our vision is that older people are enabled to live a valued life in an inclusive society.

We are one of the most significant providers of support and services to older people in the Auckland region and are one of a nationwide network of 31 members, branches and associates affiliated to Age Concern New Zealand (ACNZ). We provide services, information, advice, support, education and advocacy to older people in response to local needs. Our Counties Manukau office provides support from as far south as Mercer, north to Māngere, east to Kaiaua and west to the Awhitu Peninsula, including the Franklin region.

Age Concern Auckland works towards a society where older people are respected, valued, supported and empowered. We enhance the health and wellbeing of older people by promoting quality-assured activity, information, support and advice, and ensuring that older people have the opportunity for choice and continued independence. We are active and vocal on issues affecting older people.

Community Strength and Balance

Community Strength and Balance Programmes, We are part of a nation-wide movement to reduce falls and fractures and support older people to live stronger for longer. Older people pride themselves on being self-sufficient and maintaining their independence. We’re joining forces with our DHB, exercise providers, carers and health professionals throughout our region to support older people to live the lives they want to live, for as long as they can. This means we are working with exercise providers in the community to help create a pathway for referrals from GPs to programmes for older people in the region who would benefit from improved strength and balance to enable them to then access public classes.
