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 neighbors and this provided an opportunity for them to get to know their neighbors 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 neighbors.
