Nom­i­nate for cheery Christ­mas

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Do you know of se­nior cit­i­zens in Mata­mata who may be on their own and need­ing com­pan­ion­ship over the fes­tive sea­son?

Home In­stead Se­nior Care, a na­tional in-home care provider for older peo­ple, has called for peo­ple to nom­i­nate se­nior cit­i­zens for some free Christ­mas home dec­o­rat­ing and com­pan­ion­ship in its an­nual Christ­mas Cheer pro­gramme.

Vet­ted vol­un­teer car­ers will visit the suc­cess­ful nom­i­nees in the run-up to Christ­mas, putting up some dec­o­ra­tions in their home and pro­vid­ing com­pan­ion­ship dur­ing the visit.

Home In­stead Se­nior Care’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Neil Farn­worth said the pro­gramme was for a very wor­thy cause.

‘‘We want to bring the spirit of Christ­mas to older peo­ple who may be with­out fam­ily or de­serv­ing in other ways.’’

Nom­i­na­tions close on Novem­ber 30 and suc­cess­ful peo­ple will be con­tacted and a visit ar­ranged dur­ing the week start­ing De­cem­ber 13.

To make a nom­i­na­tion email hamil­ton@home­in­ with Christ­mas Cheer as the sub­ject line or phone Lyn Pet­ti­grew on 07 834 2296.
