The Metua Pakari Wellness programme is a partnership programme facilitated by the Auckland Eastern Bays Kuki Airani Trust and Pacific Homecare for the elderly (aged 65 years and above) living in the Glen Innes, Panmure, Point England and Mt Wellington areas.
The programme provides a wellness programme of activities and social events to support our elderly people to enjoy “living longer and living better” with a supportive social and cultural context. The main focus is enjoyment through participation, with a health and wellbeing emphasis.
It is a pilot project for 2016, funded through the Tangata O Le Moana Pacific Provider Network and the Ministry of Health. The pilot project is being evaluated by Malatest International through Dr Lana Perese.
