Our areas of expertise are:

Home-based care and nursing

  • Tailored approach – our care is highly personalised to suit your very specific requirements. The right skills are vital, obviously, but so is the ‘personal fit’. We work closely with our patients and their families to take candid and confidential briefings on the type of carer they’re looking for. We then take care to match our staff with your needs.
  • Peace of mind - all staff are vetted specifically to ensure they’re suitable to work in your home. Not only are they screened by the New Zealand Police for security clearance. They’re also assessed for personality and presentation.
  • Personal empathy – we place a strong focus on this. We’re sensitive always to the fact that we’re in your personal space.

Rehabilitation care and nursing

  • Caring and motivating – our specialist staff know exactly what it takes to support successful rehabilitation. They’re fully trained to deal with not only with the physical side of things, but the mental side as well.
  • Personalities count – we know that having the right nurse or carer at your side can help enormously with the rehabilitation process. That’s why we go to great lengths to match personalities. To ensure your rehabilitation team is as close, and as effective, as it can possibly be.
  • Help where it’s needed – our services are available across the full spectrum of care locations; from hospitals through to private residences, hospices and rest homes.

Mental health care and nursing

  • Specialist focus – there is a growing need for support in this area.
