Family Support Volunteers

Family Support Volunteers are trained specifically to support a person living with a terminal illness, and their family.

Te Omanga’s Family Support Volunteers establish a friendly and supportive relationship with the patient and their family. They offer support through a friendly phone call, or driving and social visiting, giving carers a break to go to an appointment or do the groceries.

If you would like to know more about our Family Support Volunteer team, please call Janice Henson, Manager of Volunteer Services on 04 569 0682 or email Janice.Henson@teomanga.org.nz.
