Volly Call - Social Day Volunteers

Wendy Richards from Volunteering New Plymouth

The … View moreThe Awesome hardworking people at Alzheimers Taranaki provide, support, advice, information, and advocacy for people with dementia. They also educate and inform the wider community about dementia and remove the stigma attached to this disease that affects so many of our families today. The Community Advisors facilitate Carer Support Groups and Alz Café Social groups.
Alzheimers Taranaki run Day Programmes for people with dementia in both New Plymouth and Hawera. The day programme or “clubs” provide social and cognitive stimulation, entertainment, and activities for people in the early to moderate stages of dementia whilst also providing day respite for the care partners, carer, and family / whanau.


Volunteers are being sought to assist with that Social Day programme that takes place every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On these days clients are offered a few hours of respite and social activities from 10.00am until 3.00pm in the welcoming venue in New Plymouth Bowling Club.



This special time allows everyone to enjoy a few hours of fun filled and active atmosphere. It is really important that a good mix of male and female volunteers are available. So, if you have a friendly nature that can add to this social interaction with people who really appreciate the time you spend with them, then here is your chance to make a huge difference to someone's day. If you have a good sense of humour and are happy to be encouraging with the clients, then you are who Alzheimers Taranaki’s Day programme is looking for.



A fortnightly roster is arranged, so the commitment is not too difficult to meet. The time commitment is from 9.30am till 3pm. You can choose to volunteer for as little as one day a week – just five and a half hours a fortnight. There are regular training/ information sessions which includes Health & Safety, Volunteer Rights & Responsibilities, Exercise and Fall Prevention and Culture. There is a requirement for a Police Check.



If you think that you might be that special person who has a kind heart and patient nature, understands people’s needs, and willing to work in a relaxed, fun team environment, then now is the time to give Wendy a call at Volunteering New Plymouth on 06 758 8986, text / phone 022 571 4228 or email admin@volunteeringnewplymouth.nz for any additional information and to arrange for an interview, she is looking forward to hear from you.

Hopefully the organisation that runs Neighbourly monitors their message boards as there doesn't appear to be any other way to contact them via their website.

I have noticed that over the past few days Neighbourly displays in a large (mobile version) display when veiwed on desktop using Firefox. The problem doesn't exist when viewed via Edge so I suspect Neighbourly have an incompatibility issue with the Firefox browser. Time for the IT boys to earn their keep!

The up sides are that I can view Neighbourly without needing my reading glasses, and all those pesky adverts down the sides have disappeared.

Add milk pregnancy testing to your next herd test, it’s the convenient way to tell if your girls are expecting after 28 days – without them knowing.

But why stop there? Combining animal health checks to your herd test could uncover subclinical Staph aureus, Johnes disease, those who produce A2/A2 milk, as well as your herd’s production worth (PW) to help you make better calls.

Talk to your Agri Manager about adding pregnancy or animal health checks to your next herd test.
