Eldercare

St Christopher’s ElderCare programme is designed to meet some of the needs of the elderly in our community. We run two regular programmes (Tech-Talk-Teach and Keeping U Moving) every Thursday except the 4th Thursday of the month. On the 4th Thursday of the month we break from our regular activities to run special seminars for the elderly.


Tech-Talk-Teach

9:30-11:30AM Thursdays

Tech-Talk-Teach aims to help the elderly use technology to communicate with friends and family using the internet. This enhances their lives by reducing lonliness and the feeling of isolation.

Book a place to learn how to use your mobile and iPad. Bookings are essential - 021 223 0160 . Cost $2.


Keeping U Moving

11:30AM-12:30PM Thursdays

Keeping U Moving aims to maintain and increase mobility, fitness and balance by offering a walking programme where walkers can keep track of their progress as they walk around the hall to music.

For ages 50 and above. Located in St Christopher's Church Hall. Bookings are essential - 021 223 0160. Small donations to cover costs are encouraged. Stay and enjoy a cup of tea afterwards.


Older Person Seminar

10AM-1PM (4th Thursday of the month)

ElderCare runs a monthly Older Person Seminar on the 4th Thursday of the month. Each seminar has a local guest speaker who talks about a topic relevant to older people. This event is very well attended, with 60-80 coming each month.

Morning tea and lunch are provided. Bookings are essential. Please phone 03 579 4446 and leave your name and number. Small donations to cover costs are encouraged.
