Our ethos is ‘to care for older people, you have to care about them’, me mātua aroha ki te tangata, hei manaaki tika i a rātou and this approach puts the individual at the centre of everything we do. To guide us in the practical realisation of this (in terms of how we provide services), we believe that the wellbeing of any person we connect with, is defined by the following five domains:
A dimension that brings meaning to life.
Growth (Te Haere Whakamua)
Continuing to learn and flourish as a person.
Contentment (Te Taunga Manawa)
A state of satisfaction with life.
A sense of meaningful connection with others, being part of a community.
Resilience (Te Oranga)
Capacity to overcome adversity, stress or uncomfortable change in ourselves or our circumstances.
Wellbeing is impacted by your environment, your physical and mental health status and the opportunities you have to engage in life.
