Age Concern Auckland and A Better Chance work together

Age Concerns specialised Asian Services team working in partnership with A Better Chance Charitable Trust have introduced some new activities. One of these involves, inviting older Chinese people living alone to come to a dumpling making class. While they are making dumplings, they deliver talks on Positive Ageing – during the session in the photo they were discussing the importance of staying active as you age.

They also deliver weekly activities through rest homes. The games and activities are designed to encourage the residents to interact with each other and to stimulate their cognitive thinking. Mandy facilitates the activities and the residents look forward to her visits.
