Whānau | Clients

Tui Ora takes a whānau centred approach to its services. This means we consider all the factors in a person’s life for health and wellbeing. For example a pregnant mother may need advice on nutrition, budgeting and injury prevention as well as breastfeeding peer support. A patient suffering from cancer may need an advocate to help them navigate through the health system.

Our staff works together, co-ordinating services and helping to support clients so they can make better decisions for their future. In this way our services are responsive and flexible. We believe each family/whānau has the capability to reach its potential with support from provider organisations like ourselves. To find out more about how to refer email intake@tuiora.co.nz
