About The Florence Nightingale Agency.

The Florence Nightingale Agency is a progressive and innovative provider of in-home care to people who are unable to support themselves. Based in Christchurch, with teams in Nelson, Marlborough, Otago and Southland, we provide well-trained carers to ensure only the best of service and care is given.

We offer a wide range of in-home care from short term help through to long term 24 hour care for people with serious injuries.

For more than twenty years, the Florence Nightingale Agency has been working with ACC, MoH and private clients and has developed a strong rapport with Families and Whanau, MoH and ACC Managers, Occupational Therapists and other Health Professionals.

Because we are passionate about the care of others, we are committed to delivering quality at all levels. All of our Support Workers are experienced and devoted to providing the best possible care to all our clients.
