How do I access homecare services?

Our clients pay nothing for Pacific Homecare services (unless you qualify for Individual Funding). Anyone can ring the Needs Assessment Service Centre (NASC) and ask for help from Pacific Homecare.

You, or a family member, your Doctor, your friend or the hospital may contact the NASC if you feel that you need help to stay in your own home.

If you are under 65 years of age please ring the Taikura NASC on 0800-Taikura (0800 824 5872).

If you are over 65 years of age please ring the CMDB NASC on 09-276 0040 and ask for help from Pacific Homecare.

What if English is a second language for clients?

Our staff come from every Pacific background – Samoan, Tongan, Niuean, Maori, Fijian, Indian, European, Nauruan, Cook Island, Tokelauan, Tuvaluan and others – so we can meet the cultural needs of our clients.

Cultural appropriateness and responsiveness principles underpin all Pacific Homecare activities and planning. Wherever possible, we provide Coordinators and Support Workers who are matched with your cultural, language, dietary and faith based requirements, as well as the required skills and experience to meet your needs.
