Seniors Morning Tea

RaWiri Residential Association connected with the elderly home the Auckland Council  Seniors home on Inverell Court  October 2013. A concept much needed to connect the elderly with RaWiri and bridge the age gap between the ages. Since then the team have formed a lasting relationship and friendship between the "Youngsters". The team continues to meet with the seniors monthly and have remembered how a few of the seniors prefer their coffee.
 
The First morning tea was set up in their courtyard with joint attendance by the Neighbourhood Policing Team. Many of the seniors hadn't met their neighbours and this provided an opportunity for them to get to know their neighbours and build a strong unity among each other. We had a few sceptics about the concept idea, but they have now become regular attenders and made lasting friendships with her neighbours.

In 2014 we unfortunately had a few of our seniors pass, they are sadly missed by the other seniors and our staff. New seniors have moved into the area and have started forming lasting friendships with their new neighbours. 

2015 was another great year with the Elderly. We unfortunately had a few pass within the year which our team will dearly miss. A few are pictured and fond memories remain in our hearts.

2016 is set to be another fun year with the Elderly and we enjoy each Friday we get to spend with the team. A few members have joined us from Alfriston court in the hope to start a group of their own there. We look forward to alot of laughs with you all.
