Montessori is not just for the young ones. It has been proven through research that the Montessori approach to care is bringing the humanistic values in full realization when applied to the care of the seniors and persons with dementia. Scott Holland Healthcare brings the Montessori model of care for the first time in New Zealand. All of our staff are certified Montessori care providers, practicing the principles which are based on providing a high sense of independence to our clients in their homes, giving them a sense of purpose and opportunities to continue to learn and enjoy life.

Experience home care with a difference.
“The staff at Scott Holland gave Peter excellent care. They were always on time which helped me plan the day better with the free time I had when they were there. They did not only look after Peter but of me as well. They are just caring, honest and reliable people.” – Sue Lucas, Howick Auckland

“The time I have with Helen of Scott Holland is always very special. I really appreciate her company and always look forward to it. Maria is a very nice, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional to deal with. I have full confidence in her. Overall, I am really grateful for their wonderful service.” – Margaret Neilson, Mission Bay Auckland

“I cannot speak high enough of how fantastic the service we received from Scott Holland. They truly went over and beyond to keep Dave comfortable, happy, and safe while he was at home. The activities were planned according to Dave’s hobby and interest. He always looked forward to it. Dave has a condition where he takes time to express himself, Maria and her staff made him feel comfortable and always took time to engage him in conversation. I really appreciate that because it shows how much they care and respect him even if it was difficult.” - Maureen Proulx, North Shore Auckland

Scott Holland understands that the end-of life process is one fraught with apprehension, fear and sadness. It is not every day that we experience losing our loved ones and just as quality of life is important, quality end-of-life is equally essential. We work with hospices and aged residential care homes to provide high-level palliative care. Our service is based on the fundamental concepts of pain-free and comfort care principles. We hope to be of help to you in giving the best end-of life care to your loved one.
