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 have defined the wellbeing of any person 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 the environments we create for you, your physical health status and the opportunities you have to engage in life.
