Description
Without care in the home many people would have no option but to move into residental care. For over 20 years, Lifewise Homecare has supported people in their own homes, so that they can continue to live independently. Our services are certified to New Zealand Home and Community Sector Standards, and staff undergo continuous training and supervision to ensure that the highest standard of care is maintained.
Service Description
We can provide support with personal care, household management (i.e. housekeeping), meal preparation, socialisation, carer support and respite (when family are unavailable or need a break), 24 hour and overnight care, help with shopping, doctor's visits etc. Extra cleaning is available as well as private care for those who do not hold a Community Service Card or are already receiving subsidised help.

Homecare Services can be funded by the Auckland District Health Board or the Ministry of Health; or through private means.

Our Case Managers complete a thorough individual assessment of each person referred for services and develop a plan of care in conjunction with the client and their significant others.
