KAUMĀTUA AND KUIA DAY PROGRAMME
The goal of this programme is to provide opportunities for Kaumātua and Kuia to remain active, and independent also to socialise and age positively, where they are highly valued and recognised as an integral part of whānau and communities. It is open to people between the ages of 50+ years.
The day programme aims to help reduce social isolation and reconnect them with their peers, whanau and community to create a sense of belonging. It focuses on three areas: Age related Health Education, with easier access, fitness and mobility, and the opportunity to explore and participate in Te Ao Māori.
Participants take part in activities, outings and workshops – everything from learning about Traditional Māori Arts and Crafts, medicine, and visiting local marae and historical sites, to taking part in exercise and listening to presentations given by agencies.
The Kaumātua Day Programme is on every Tuesday and Thursday from 9-15am to 1pm.
Transport, morning tea and lunch is provided.
