Age Concern Rodney is one of 33 Age Concern councils throughout New Zealand and is under the umbrella of Age Concern New Zealand. Age Concern Rodney is a Not-For-Profit organisation that is totally reliant on community grants and donations. We became incorporated in April 1998 and during these 20 years Age Concern Rodney has provided a variety of services to the elderly of Rodney. The area we service is from Te Hana/Wellsford to the Hibiscus Coast and across to Helensville, including all places in between.

We provide the following services to the elderly of Rodney: Advocacy, Information Service, Time Out Programme, Elder Abuse and Neglect Prevention and Awareness Service, Skills Bank, Visiting Service, Age Concern Rodney WDHB Community Hospital Shuttle (available to all age groups in Rodney), Health Promotion, Senior Drivers' Courses, Health and Safety Expo, Senior Games Day, International Day of the Older Person - Celebration Concert.

Our target age group is the older section or 65+ age group and their families in our community but if required we are happy to assist other age groups.

At Age Concern Rodney, we strive to offer a friendly but professional service. We respect our clients' confidentiality, dignity, cultural / religious beliefs and listen without being judgemental or biased.

We at Age Concern Rodney take pride in our quality services and professionalism.

The Age Concern Rodney motto is: “Working together to promote quality of life for older people".
