Our History

Pacific Homecare was established in 1988 and was originally known as Kuki Airani Aorangi Pakari Trust. It was run by two women who answered a need for homecare services for the Pacific Island elderly people in the local Otara community. They raised funds by making and selling tivaivai (Cook Island bedspreads).

The group grew as they responded to the demand of the diverse Pacific cultures, elderly and disabled in the Counties Manukau region.

In 1995 Kuki Airani Aorangi Pakari Trust changed its name to Pacific Island Home Care Services Trust. Pacific Island Home Care Services Trust became a Health

Provider affiliated to and funded by the Counties Manukau District Health Board (CMDHB), the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC).

In April 2011 Pacific Island Home Care Services Trust rebranded and changed our name to Pacific Homecare.
