Service Description
The Florence Nightingale Agency provides home support services for people in their homes.

With a team of over 100 trained carers who make around 400 visits to city homes each week, the agency is committed to “Putting Heart into Community Care”.

The Company as a whole is committed to providing quality at all levels of care. Our goal is to have a carer in the home within 24 hours of receiving a referral.

During the past 15 years Florence Nightingale Agency has been working with ACC and private clients and more recently is an approved Ministry of Health and DHB providers in Blenheim and Nelson.
