How we Help

We can help explain to healthcare workers your cultural and spiritual requirements when you are a patient and we can advise and assist staff as they endevour to meet your tikanga needs.

We can facilitate whānau hui.

A kaiawhina will visit you and/or your whānau any time you ask, whether you are an inpatient or an outpatient.

Social Workers promote your total wellbeing. They provide manaakitanga and support counselling and facilitate practical solutions.

The Cardiac Liaison Nurse provides support and advocacy to Māori referred to cardio-related services.

We can help with temporary accommodation.

The Service Coordinator receives referrals to Whānau Care Services, makes assessment of need and degree of urgency and allocates personnel to provide the support and/or assistance required.
