Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

It is now easier to remain independent and stay in your own home with the support of Healthcare NZ Community Health’s friendly team of health professionals. Whether you need help with personal care, home support, your medication, wound care, or managing your health needs, we can put together a support package designed especially for you.

HCNZ Community Health is a quality accredited Kiwi organisation that has been supporting people to live their lives to the full for more than 20 years. Our fully funded services are available via referral from your doctor, local needs assessment agency or through ACC.

HCNZ Community Health provides the Good to be Home service, that works alongside you, and your family and whánau, each step of the way, with a personalised support plan that incorporates your individual needs and goals.

The Good to be Home service assists you to:
• actively complete everyday tasks

• build mobility, strength and confidence.

As a restorative service, Good to be Home is designed to enhance your quality of life and independence by supporting you to do everyday tasks for yourself.
