Description
Good Friends is a new personal care, nursing and home helper service available in Christchurch for those who need help to live independently.

Using a combination of digital technology and human intuition, Good Friends brings together skilled helpers to offer a personalised support and help plan created just for you. Good Friends works closely with members to provide services tailored to their specific needs, at the exact time they choose and by the helper they prefer. Helpers can assist with all aspects of personal care and household tasks from 2 – 24 hour support, seven days a week, including sleepovers.

Living life the way you want sometimes means asking for help. And when that help fits in with who you are and how you like to live, it increases your happiness and sense of wellbeing. The power of community is the inspiration behind Good Friends.

For further information visit our website or call 0800 20 41 20 to arrange a no obligation free visit by one of our care team.

Good Friends is brought to you by Arvida (www.arvida.co.nz), a local retirement group that’s transforming the aged-care experience in New Zealand. Arvida’s goal is to create or support living environments that allow older and less-abled New Zealanders to maintain meaningful connections to the people, community and activities they love. Arvida calls this ‘living a life with soul’.

Arvida offers retirement living accommodation and aged care services to over 4,750 residents in 32 retirement communities nationally. We are one of the largest providers of aged care services in New Zealand. Everyday almost 2,600 team members strive to improve the lives and wellbeing of our residents so they have a more fulfilling life as they age.

Service Description
We have a one-of-a-kind network of trained carers who deliver home care and help in a way that is friendly, focused and tailored to you. Our aim is to help anyone experiencing challenges looking after their health and their home to live well. Our carers are hand-picked to suit you, your needs and your continued independent living.

We are committed to:

Care and support - We can assist with all your personal care and home support needs, from helping with your morning shower to vacuuming. Our friendly helpers and qualified nurses aim to support you to live well in your own home. Visit our website for information on the help our helpers can provide or call us on 0800 20 41 20 for a chat.

Individual empowerment - No one knows you better than you know yourself, so we will work closely with you to design a personalised plan for the help you need, delivered just the way you want it. It can include a mix of personal care, nursing, home and garden services.

Community and friendship - We want to build a community of helpful people around you who genuinely care about your wellbeing,
so that it’s easier for you to stay connected to friends, family, hobbies, sports and local events that put more joy into everyday life.

Technology and innovation - The technology behind Good Friends is user-friendly, even if you’re not a techy sort of person. The app shows you a schedule of your services, plus the helpers providing them. It provides insightful data to your care team about your health, wellbeing and satisfaction, so you always get the best support possible.
