Public Service

Description

A Needs Assessment is the first step towards getting the support or services you and your family require if you have a long-term disability. A Needs Assessment is a process of determining your strengths, needs and goals and identifying the services required to support you to be as independent as possible.
 
Auckland District Health Board provides NASC services for people 65 years old and over living in the Central Auckland area as a part of Home and Older People's Health.

NASC services for people under 65 years old living in the Central Auckland area are provided by Taikura Trust. If you are under 65 you cannot be referred to our care. Please, go to the Taikura Trust website www.taikuratrust.org.nz for more information about their service.
 
 
Our NASC team is concerned with the long term support needs of elderly people who have a disability, and the needs of their carers.  The aim of the service is to assist older people to remain living at home, safely and independently, for as long as possible.
