Community services for older adults

Providing care and support to seniors in their community

An ageing population and longer life expectancy demands a realistic change to the way we provide services to those people over 65 years old. “Ageing in place” is a concept favoured by policy-makers, which reflects the strong desire of older New Zealanders to live independently in their own communities. The Selwyn Foundation is committed to providing services that support older people to live full and independent lives in their own home, within their own community for as long as possible. We are also working with retirement villages where no residential care is provided to deliver services to their independent living residents. Call Sandi on 0800 30 1234 to discuss how we can help you and your residents.
