We have approximately 150 handpicked qualified support workers who provide funded home based support. Basic household management i.e. vacuuming, cleaning service areas - bathroom, toilet, kitchen surfaces - and personal cares i.e. showering, dressing, medication supervision, meal preparation, exercise & mobility.  Our services are provided through a referral process from the District Health Board. Referrals are generally through your GP, but can be direct to the Needs Assessors at Middlemore or Taikura Trust. People assessing our service are elderly or have a disability and meet the assessment criteria and also wish to continue living at home and in their own communities.  If a person is not/partially eligible for funding, we can still provide our services to you as a private paying client.
