For most of our clients, being able to retain as much independence as possible is key to their quality of life.
Homecare is available for anyone recovering in their own home from an accident or surgery, those who have been assessed as needing support, and those with a life-limiting illness.
Housework and personal care tasks can be difficult under these circumstances, and Homecare helps our clients retain their independence while living safely in familiar surroundings.
Following assessment, and a care plan by a registered nurse, support workers provide assistance with needs including dressing and undressing, personal grooming, bathing, toileting, and mobility needs and meals. Personal Care services are available seven days a week when needed.
The support worker provides household tasks including laundry, vacuuming, dusting, dishes, bed making, meal preparation and essential shopping so clients can leave hospital earlier or stay in their own home. The service is available 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Referrals to Homecare services may be made directly by clients, or their families/whanau, GP, Needs Assessment and Service Coordination Agencies, ACC or public or private hospitals.
Homecare services are free to those assessed as meeting eligibility for services. There is also a private payment option for those not eligible for funding.
