We have many disabled attendees who are thriving thru this.
The Care and Craft Centres cater for lonely house-bound people and not so mobile adults, known as guests, who are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of handcrafts and social activities.
That's us for the year.
Thanks Carol and Jill for a lovely Christmas party lunch....and for all the other yummy morning teas and lunches. Thanks Mary, Jenny and Glen for your volunteer services. And our biggest thank you goes to Dot McCulloch.... your love and energy for the group is very much appreciated. Thank you also to the many others who behind the scenes help us meet each week.

Our amazing Dot turned 82 years young yesterday.
Thank you for all you have done for Care and Craft in the 33+ years you have been involved/running it.
Some new changes in place.
From 11:59pm on 12 September 2022, the COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic lights) will be removed.
With cases reducing, a highly-vaccinated population, and comprehensive access to anti-viral medicines, New Zealand can safely move forward.
This will mean a few changes for tomorrow:
• You will only need to wear a mask when visiting healthcare facilities like hospitals, GPs, and aged care residential facilities. Some places like workplaces or marae may ask people to wear a mask. You can find more information on masks here: https://covid19.govt.nz/prepare-and-stay-safe/keep-up-healthy-habits/face-masks/
• You only need to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19. Leave support payments for COVID-19 cases will continue. You can find out what to do if you test positive here: https://covid19.govt.nz/isolation-and-care/if-you-have-covid-19/
• Household Contacts are recommended to take a RAT every day for five days. So long as you test negative, you will be able to go about daily life as normal. You’re encouraged to wear a mask whenever you leave home, particularly if visiting vulnerable people, like elderly or immunocompromised people, using public transport, or when in a crowded indoor space.
• You will no longer need to be vaccinated to enter New Zealand. People arriving in New Zealand from overseas will continue to receive free RATs at the airport and will be encouraged to test on day 0/1 and 5/6. You can find more information for preparing to travel to New Zealand here: https://covid19.govt.nz/international-travel/travel-to-new-zealand-by-air/preparing-to-travel-to-new-zealand/
• All remaining vaccine mandates will end. The last workforce with a Government vaccine mandate is health and disability workers. This will end on 11:59pm, 26 September 2022. Some employers may still require workers to be vaccinated due to their responsibilities under health and safety legislation.
• Anti-viral medicines will be available for free to any New Zealander 65+ who tests positive for COVID-19. For Māori and Pacific peoples, these medicines will be available for free to anyone aged 50+ who tests positive. In addition, anyone with three high-risk conditions is eligible for free anti-viral medicines. You can find more information here: https://covid19.govt.nz/isolation-and-care/if-you-have-covid-19/medicines-to-treat-covid-19/

If you're getting Jobseeker Support because of a health condition, injury or disability, we may soon ask you to renew your medical certificate ✅
We temporarily stopped asking for renewals on these certificates during our initial response to COVID-19, and now we've started the renewals again. Generally your health practitioner will complete a Work Capacity Medical Certificate.
🗓 We'll write to you when you need to renew your medical certificate. Not everyone will need to provide a new certificate at the same time - it'll depend on when your medical certificate is due to expire.
You can use MyMSD to find out when your medical certificate expires. It's listed in the 'My Profile' section. You can also call us on 0800 559 009 ☎️
For more information please visit 👉 bit.ly/3xng1G9

The flu jab is now free if:
* You're 65 and over (55 for Māori or Pacific)
* You're pregnant
* You have certain health conditions like diabetes
Contact your GP or local pharmacy to book your appointment, or find more information here:
On holidays now - school breaks up for two weeks and so do we. The helpers need a break. When we get back on 3rd May we will be getting ready to celebrate our 34th birthday. Cant believe it - 34 years since Cyclone Bola and here we are in storm mode again.
Our birthday will be celebrated in a different way. Not just an entertainer, but something different. If you have been involved with Care and Craft in the past, please speak up and come along and have some fun, but please get in touch first - for catering purposes.
From 11.59pm tonight, 13 April all of New Zealand will move to Orange 🟠
Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a sustained reduction in cases and hospitalisations despite the relaxation of settings. Under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, this means we can now move to the Orange setting.
At Orange 🟠
➡️ There are no indoor or outdoor capacity limits at events.
➡️ Face masks are still required for many indoor settings. Inside schools, face masks are not required but still encouraged.
➡️ There are no changes to the 7-day self-isolation requirement, if you, or someone you live with gets COVID-19.
➡️ Bars and restaurants are no longer required to enforce seated and separated rules, although they can choose to keep them.
Wearing a face mask at Orange is still important, especially with capacity limits removed. Next to being vaccinated and having a booster, face masks are the best defence against COVID-19 and reduce new cases by as much as 53%.
Traffic light settings will be reviewed in mid-May.
Find out more about Life at Orange here: https://covid19.govt.nz/orange
