A Christmas message from our Chief Executive - Stephanie Clare.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! - I am so looking forward to slowing down over the holiday season. For me it is a time I treasure, catching up with family and friends, making memories and checking in to see if everyone is ok!

I know the reality for a lot of older people is not so rosy. Loneliness is still a major issue for many, and the holiday season often only magnifies those horrible feelings and sadness and being alone.  Please consider making a Christmas donation so we can help more lonely seniors.

Thank you for your support, Mere Kirihimete and best wishes for 2022.
