Free book for seniors: Where From Here He Ara Whakamua

Wednesday, April 29, 2020   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: elderly, resources, older people, information, services

The new edition of Eldernet's Upper South Island "Where from Here" is out now. This book covers South Canterbury, Canterbury, Nelson/Marlborough and the West Coast DHB regions.

"Where from Here" is often referred to as the "Aged Care Bible". However information about aged care is not all it has to offer. This FREE book is bought to you by the same team that operates the Eldernet website. Their aim is to ‘put you in the driving seat’ by giving you the information you need to make informed decisions.

"Where from Here" contains essential information for older people in New Zealand - ranging from mental and physical wellbeing, getting help at home, carer support, enduring powers of attorney, financial assistance and information about retirement facilities etc. The book lists all residential homes in the region and specifies the level of care each one provides. There are also lists of all home help providers, Kaumatua services and day care providers.

Five editions cover New Zealand and each is specific to the area concerned - 3 for the North Island (Upper, Middle and Lower) and 2 for the South Island (Upper and Lower).

Each edition is updated every two years and is available free of charge through approved agencies and via health professionals such as social workers, needs assessors and service co-ordinators at public hospitals.

Agencies where you may also be able to pick up a copy include:

  • your local GP;
  • your local library;
  • Age Concern;
  • Grey Power;
  • MSD; or
  • Citizens Advice Bureau.

Order your copy of the Upper South Island version of Where From Here online or by contacting Eldernet (0800 162 706).  You can also download an electronic version (PDF).
