  • Supporting your family and whānau during COVID-19 - Working as a caregiver in your home

    The Ministry of Health, in collaboration with Careerforce, has created five learning modules with useful advice on how to support your family and whānau during the pandemic, and halt the spread of COVID-19.

    These modules are based on the course materials that health and care support workers use to gain their formal qualifications, and have been developed for all audiences to use at any point, not just when New Zealand is in Alert Level 4.
