Own it, live it, be the leader of your life
Registered Nurses and support workers provide clinical services, health promotion and education at community venues (eg. in whānau homes, early childhood centres, kohanga reo, schools, marae).
This work may be supported by a Kaiāwhina (support worker). Their role is to support whānau or individuals with any social issues identified as obstacles to achieving improved health and well being.
Health education, promotion and assessments are available on topics/conditions such as heart disease, asthma, strokes, cancer, diabetes, unintentional injuries and nutrition.
Free checks include blood pressure checks and blood sugar level monitoring checks with support to Breast and Cervical Screening Services, Ear, Nose and Throat and Respiratory Clinics and Stop Smoking Services.
We are currently a registered Diabetes Conversations MAPS provider where in-depth, interactive education and support is provided for those identified with long term conditions.
For whānau whose tamariki are not accessing Tamariki Ora/Well Child services, we provide support, facilitation and whānau care.
