“Home support is for people who need assistance to remain in their own homes. Support is available for activities such as housework, shopping, and personal cares.

Our team of support workers are a dedicated, diverse group of community minded Waiheke residents from varying backgrounds and ages, and whom have many different talents and qualifications. They are consistent in their passion for caring for people in their homes and making a difference in their lives.

People are eligible for funded home support services through the Trust if they have been assessed as having a disability (of any age), they have a claim with ACC, and for people who need short term support at home when coming home from hospital. Limited support is available for people requiring Palliative Care services.

Access to home-support services is via a referral from ACC or Needs Assessment Services Co-ordinator.
