Description

Royal District Nursing Service - New Zealand (RDNS NZ) – ‘By your side’

For many people, remaining in the comfort and security of your own home can be a challenge.

If you’ve had a life changing event such as surgery or an accident, or simply need support as you grow older, RDNS NZ can help you to remain independent, at home and an active part of your community. 

Our professional and friendly staff can work with you to plan services that will support your goals and help you to get the most out of life. 

We are a homecare provider contracted to Southland DHB.

Referral to RDNS NZ can come from virtually any source. You can either contact us directly or a family member, carer, doctor or other health professional can make the referral for you. 

Our services include: 

  • Personal care: assistance with showering, dressing and undressing, meal preparation or assistance to get into and out of bed 
  • Home help: support with housework, laundry and shopping 
  • Restorative activities: assistance with exercise or socialisation programmes that will allow you to lead a fulfilling life 

If you would like to speak with someone about our services or your specific needs, simply call 0800 736 769 and one of our friendly staff will be very happy to talk with you.
