Description

Kidney Society Auckland provides community support and information for people with kidney failure and their families in the  Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Tairawhiti/Gisborne and Hawke's Bay areas.

Services, delivered in person (one on one and in groups), by phone and by mail/ email include social work, phone support and information about kidney failure and related topics. In partnership with Counties Manukau renal services the Society runs three Kidney Society Dialysis Houses in Papatoetoe and Mangere, where trained patients can come and do their own haemodialysis treatments. An individual home based wellness programme helps people with their mobility and independence.

The Society's focus is on helping patients get on with life in spite of the limitations imposed by kidney failure and its treatments.
