This free, mobile service is available throughout Taranaki to all age groups.  It includes access to a kaiāwhina for added support to family/whānau in their time of need.

Our focus is assisting clients and their family/whānau to manage their condition. We walk alongside people, helping them understand their diagnosis, their medication and any related procedures. We work closely with client’s wider networks such as doctors, practice nurses, and other health professionals.
