Mycare is the easiest way to find, manage, and pay for the in-home care services you deserve.

With no joining fee, you can connect with any of the pre-approved support workers, choose the local person who's right for you, and deal directly with them to create a tailored care plan.


There are heaps of ways the Mycare community can help:

-Personal care: Need help getting in and out of bed, or bathing? Getting dressed, looking sharp and tidy? Home help to support you through your day.

-Help at home: Those daily chores like the washing up and laundry. Mopping the floors and vacuuming. Changing the sheets and making beds. Light gardening and tidying up the section.

-Live-in support: Making sure help is always at hand. Support with the daily tasks and overnight assistance.

-Transportation: Helping you get to the doctors, the supermarket – a day out. Your car or the helper’s, you decide.

-Companionship: Listening and chatting. A game of cards, a cup of tea. A walk in the park, a trip to the shops.

-Meals: From trips to the supermarket to preparing light meals, teas and coffees.

-Exercise support: Need help to stay active? Someone to join you on a walk or a swim at the pool. A visit to the gym or exercise at home.

-Running errands: Assisting you with the day-to-day errands. From picking up your prescriptions to help with the shopping.

“Chrissy was hired to help my elderly father who was determined to stay in his own home. We live in Auckland so when Dad (in Hamilton) lost his license we needed someone reliable to drive him places, help him with his grocery shopping as well as clean the house each week. Chrissy started out visiting Dad for an hour or so five days a week, then as Dad's health deteriorated we asked her to visit twice a day and eventually 7 days a week which she did without complaint. She has been extremely helpful and trustworthy.”

“I have found Susan to be very reliable and responsible. She is very warm and caring and it’s lovely to see how well she relates with my mother. She has a great sense of humour and I feel she is genuinely committed to her work. I feel I can relax and trust that she will do what’s needed with my mother. I highly recommend her to others.”
