Association members in Christchurch report that they had a frantically busy weekend, making sure that all clients were safe, and endeavouring to manage rosters. This has been made all the more stressful because of access problems due to the state of the roads, and, this week, because of the closure of schools (many support workers have school aged children). One provider reports that a staff member has lost her home.
NZHHA has extended its empathy and messages of support to Christchurch provider members at this very stressful time.
