Nurse Maude provides nursing, homecare, and support so people can stay in their own homes and communities and inpatient care in its hospital and hospice. By working in partnership with other health providers and through significant investment in our people, technology, research and development, Nurse Maude continues to care for the people of Canterbury, as we have done since 1896.
Nursing is provided by Nurse Maude in the client's home across the greater Canterbury area from Rakaia to Kaikoura and across the West Coast.
Specialist palliative care provides care and support of symptoms which may be physical, emotional, spiritual or social. Family/whanau and friends can also receive practical and emotional support
For most of our clients, being able to retain as much independence as possible is key to their quality of life.
Many of the frail elderly cared for by Nurse Maude live in reduced social and financial conditions, with little or no family support and a bare minimum of income.
