Provide those with life-threateningÂ illness and their immediate families a break with a smallÂ cost.
When people have a life-threateningÂ illness, the family life revolves around the illness. It is difficult to escape the illness, with bills to pay, medicines around the house. TimeOut, away from home gives the family an opportunity to come closer together, allowing a lot of the stresses and pressures to be put aside for a short time.
Families are strengthened by knowing others care about them enough to give them some practical help and support. Often a lot of the support offered at this time is medical and directed at the person with the illness. TimeOut centers on the entire family.
Every year, more than 24,000 people & their families experience life-threatening illness in NZ
