  • The Home as My First Choice programme is committed to helping you, or members of your family, maintain health and independence in your community and home. The aims are to educate and encourage health professionals and the community, when supporting and working with older people, to listen to what the older person wants. The programme shares information about where people can go for support, services and equipment, as their needs change.  It encourages people to learn about the funded and non-funded services that are available to support people at home for as long as possible, and support their whānau and friends when caring for our cherished older people, the kaumātua in our community. 

          It starts from asking the question, 'If home is my first choice, what support needs to be in place to enable this to happen?'
