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

Nova Health provides two main nursing and caregiver services. We are a specialist palliative care provider in New Zealand, and we also offer nurses and caregivers the chance to work around New Zealand for our resthome and hospital clients.

Nova Palliative Care is the branch of the company that specializes in palliative care and in-home services. We want people to have a choice of where they can be during their last stages. We believe if someone wants to stay in their own home, they should. Not only that but they should have all the support and care they need while there.

Nova Nursing is our service that we offer to New Zealand resthomes, hospitals and other aged care facilities. Nova Nursing is all about working extremely closely with our clients. Generally speaking, whatever they want they get. It may sound like what all the other nursing agencies would say, but we do things a little different.

Have a look around our website or give us a call with almost a decade in the business we are sure we can help; if we can't I am sure we know someone who can.
