The Arohaina Centre is a community centre offering support and friendship for older people in the Tairāwhiti community. The team at Arohaina supports and encourages older people in our community to stay healthy and active by offering companionship, support, and fun.
Arohaina’s philosophy is to value older people and treat them with respect and dignity at all times. Older people in our community are welcome to come and participate in our programmes, share their knowledge, and use the services we offer.
Our Arohaina Centre is open Monday to Thursday 9.30am to 12.30pm for programmes. The office is open 8.30am to 3.00pm.
The small charge to attend our centre goes towards refreshments, activities, and running costs.
Drop in for a cup of tea at our centre or get in touch with us to find out more about the services we offer for older people in Gisborne.
