Carer Relief Service

This is a service we offer, funded by the Nelson Marlborough DHB, that offers in-home respite care for full-time carers. 

Clients are assessed by a needs assessment agency (in Nelson this is Support Works) and if their carers are entitled to respite, they are put in touch with Age Concern. We match these clients with trained and supported volunteers to allow them to get out into the community and have a well-earned break.

To find out if you are entitled to Carer Support, you can contact Support Works on 0800 244 300.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer with Carer Support, please contact Susan Arrowsmith on 03 544 7624 or email: coordinator@ageconcernnt.org.nz
