Home-based support

Home-based support is available for people living at home who need assistance because of their disability or age.

In Tauranga, we call this service 'Choices', because it enables people to live within the community independently and with dignity.

We have a pool of support workers that provide professional, flexible, culturally appropriate services focusing on people’s needs and choices. All of our support workers are screened prior to employment and staff undergo ongoing training.

Support with personal care

We can offer:

  • Help with dressing / undressing 
  • Showering 
  • Transfers 
  • Supervision of medication 
  • Personal grooming 
  • Monitoring of skin and scalp

Support with household assistance

We can offer:

  • Routine household cleaning
  • Laundry
  • Meal preparation

(Please note: Household assistance does not include spring cleaning or outside tasks)

To ensure you are getting the support you need, our Co-ordinator will regularly phone or visit you to monitor the standard of the service you are receiving.
