Candid is a specialised service providing support to Lakes DHB clients aged 65 and over. Candid provides a range of services and can work with you and your family to identify and then provide guidance on how to access the resources that will best meet your needs.

Services provided include short stay, assessment on site and in the home, rehabilitation, community support, respite and may also include packages of care in liaison with Lakes DHB. This means if there are things that you find more difficult to do now, we can help you find ways to make it easier or provide support to help you maintain your independence.

Candid is situated on the sunny side of Mount Ngongotaha within walking distance of the village (where we enjoy the cafes, post shop, kiwi bank, maraes, churches and other amenities).
