ACC Homecare – Care after an injury
We work in partnership with Access Home Health for ACC Personal Care and Household Assistance, and the Serious Injury Service for those who need more intensive care, such as a spinal cord or brain injury. The service is overseen by a Registered Nurse who leads the team that manages your care, addresses queries, liaises with ACC and arranges any additional support that may be required.
If you would like Nurse Maude to provide your care, please ask your doctor or hospital staff to put ‘Nurse Maude via Access’ on the referral form.

The Community Rehabilitation & Enablement Support Team (CREST) provides an intensive programme of two to six weeks home-based assessment and rehabilitation by a skilled Support Worker. The service works with Older Persons Health Specialist Services, your GP and pharmacist.

It is Nurse Maude Founders day coming up (14 July).  


The Nurse Maude Story

Sibylla Emily Maude (1862-1935) was a formidable and selfless woman whose standard of nursing was ahead of her time. With singular devotion, she established a district nursing service, combatted influenza and impacted the lives of Christchurch’s most vulnerable. Her legacy is alive and well through the work Nurse Maude does every day.


The Early Years

After training abroad in London Sibylla returned to Christchurch and proved how immensely capable she was, becoming the Hospital Matron after only a short year (1892). Impassioned, Sibylla attempted to overhaul the way the hospital was run; in particular, she pushed for improvements in the conditions and training of nurses, understanding that improving nursing was the largest way to have a lasting impact on providing critical health care. The hospital board suppressed her bold ideas and rather than continue to battle with the establishment. On 27 May 1896, she resigned from her position in Christchurch Hospital in favour of a hands on approach – providing nursing care directly in the homes and neighbourhoods around Christchurch.
