Age Concern Palmerston North & Districts

Age Concern works throughout Manawatu to promote the rights, wellbeing, respect and dignity of older people. We do this through our Accredited Visiting Service which is a befriending service for lonely older people, our Elder Abuse and Response Service which supports older people who are victims of abuse or neglect and our Health Promotion Programmes. These include exercise programmes designed to improve participants strength and balance and make them less at risk of falling, and our Staying Safe for older drivers’ workshops and Life without a Car workshops. We also provide information, advice and support.
