My carer did everything I asked him to, he was friendly, and I enjoyed having him.

she’s a really hard worker. She did a great job cleaning up her place and was so fast at it. She really appreciated the help.

Gretchen is doing an exceptional job. His comments were “Gretchen is polite and well mannered. She is confident and competent when providing care for Mandy. Mandy really likes her.”

Joanna filled in for Sunila last week and did a absolutely fantastic job of cleaning Paul’s home. Pauline said Joanna was so polite, easy to talk to and keen to please.

She is very happy with the cares you provide and loves the way you take time to chat to her, especially when she is feeling a bit down at times.

I just want to say what a great job Kerry did. My place is looking the best it has been in ages. She did a wonderful job was so good to walk into my home and be so nice.

Service Description
Service Description
As our bodies age, we can’t always do everything we’d like - but that doesn’t mean we have to lose our independence. Ali’s Home Healthcare can provide home and personal support at a level that suits your current needs and allows you to continue leading an enjoyable lifestyle.

Our staff are respectful, culturally aware, and will take the time to go the extra mile - whether that’s helping you unpack the shopping, or topping up your firewood for the night. They’ll show kindness and positivity, and they’ll remember how you take your tea!

Some examples of ways we care for older people:

Popping in to help with small daily tasks - like dressing, taking medication, or getting the house ready for the day.

Transport and outings - like accompanying you to the supermarket or driving you to and from your bowls game or book club.

Sleepover service - to give you the peace of mind that someone will be there if anything should happen during the night.

Often, clients may not wish to enter residential living; in-the-home care means they are able to stay in their homes, retain their independence, and live the life they want.

Many of our clients need a helping hand with daily tasks due to physical or learning disabilities. We also provide support for older people who wish to remain in their own homes but need support with daily tasks.

We also provide in-home healthcare for people with progressive illnesses (MS, Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington's) and ensure the level of the care supplied is developed and is kept appropriate for the current state of the condition.

More recently we have implemented a new staff benefit where every staff goes into a draw to win petrol vouchers for time worked on a particular day, just one more way to show your carers how valued they are.

At Ali's, we CARE.  We not only pride ourselves on looking after our clients but also our staff and this year we introduced Ali's CARE Penapena Friendly Society.  This is like a Christmas savings club for the staff.  It means they will have support from the society for emergencies and enable them to save through the year.

Penapena is a Māori word meaning, to cherish, look after, save up, and store.  I believe this means we will be able to support ourselves and our whanau better in the coming years with the potential recession going to affect us all in different ways.

This is just some of the ways Ali's makes a difference.
