You deserve to live your life to the fullest extent possible, wherever you choose to live and regardless of age, frailty or disability.
When you want to stay in your own home for as long as you can, Presbyterian Support South Canterbury supports you by providing home-based care. Our Home Support and Community Services care packages help you live in your own home, stay healthy and continue to enjoy your social life.
We provide different levels of care in your home, according to your needs. With the goal of supporting your independence in your home for as long as possible, our services can cover:
We work within a “restorative care” model. This means we focus on your strengths, abilities, needs and goals to help you improve and/or maintain your physical and psychological health and continue to live as independently as possible.
We develop an individual care plan for you and review this with you every three months. Your care plan centres around your strengths, abilities, needs and goals, to help you reach your potential whilst maintaining your independence and dignity.
Age does not matter when we work as a team – we focus on what you can do, rather than what you can’t.
Our clients inspire us every day. We see supporting you as a privilege.
If you have an age related condition, disability or need help getting back on your feet after illness or injury, our carers can help around the house, with personal care, grocery shopping or light exercise.
An alternative to rest home care, Community First Registered Nurses and trained Support Workers provide rest home level care for eligible clients aged 65+ who choose to stay in their own homes.
Our Wrap Around Service provides intensive, short term support for clients transitioning from hospital back into life at home, with great results.
Fee for service support for household tasks, shopping and more, for clients not eligible for funded services.
Programmes and activities at our Enliven Day Centre, where clients aged 65+ rediscover their strengths, interests and zest for life.
Respite care or short-term care provides support for elderly (or special needs) clients and their carers.
The earlier you talk to us about services, the more we will be able to help you. If you would like to remain in your own home as long as possible, or would like to enquire about services that could be available for a relative, contact us:

For many, a first step towards determining the most appropriate type of care is to determine the level of funding to which you or your loved one may be entitled to. Assessment by the South Canterbury District Health Board’s Aged Care Needs Assessment and Service Coordination Service (NASC) will identify the level of need and funding for ongoing health care and support.
The next step is to sit down with you to discuss the options, helping you to put together a plan that meets your needs and helps you reach your own goals. We will then work alongside you to bring your plan together, with top-quality support from our caring, experienced and well qualified staff.
