New Communicare Coordinator, Albina Muthiah, says now that school’s in, it’s time for seniors to get out and have some fun!
Albina joined the Auckland not-for-profit late last year and has already got a schedule of games and activities in mind for the members of her Avondale Friendship Centre. Says Albina, “I can see my grandparents in all my guests and love to listen to their stories. I am happy that I can bring a smile to their faces and make them feel special.”
Like all coordinators in Communicare’s 21 friendship centres Albina is looking forward to renewing friendships and meeting new members this term.
As well as a variety of activities Communicare centres provide morning tea and lunch, welcoming vulnerable older people from the local community.
There are 21 friendship centres in Auckland, including Blockhouse Bay, Mt Roskill and Hillsborough.
