We believe everybody
deserves to enjoy life,
whatever their age
Last week was National Caregiver’s Week, and Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown visited Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights Home in Berhampore to help celebrate the work of their caregivers.
The Mayor joined the home on Sunday for a celebratory morning tea where she thanked the caregivers for their hard work.
“It’s lovely to be here today at Kilmarnock Heights Home to acknowledge the hard work of caregivers,” says Mayor Wade-Brown.
“Caregiving is one of the hardest jobs there is. You have to be kind, compassionate and efficient all at the same time. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you that I admire you, and that I am appreciative of the work that you do.”
Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, used Caregiver’s Week to recognise the over 900 caregivers who work for the organisation in the lower North Island.
“Caregiver’s week is a time to celebrate the work our caregivers do, and the difference they make in the lives of our residents. We are proud to have such devoted and caring staff,” says Presbyterian Support Central Chief Executive Chris Graham.
