Emerge Aotearoa provides a range of community based services which offer flexible and mobile support for people who are living independently, but not necessarily alone, in their community.
These services are for people who require some additional support to remain actively involved with family and whānau, community living, education, employment and self-management of their well being. Clients are supported to determine their own needs and to retain or regain independence in their recovery journey.
Community Support service staff provide assistance, such as accessing appropriate community services, managing household tasks and general daily living activities. Where possible, clients are matched with an age, gender and culturally compatible support worker.
Visits are normally prearranged by mutual agreement between the client and their support worker, however there is some flexibility to allow for unexpected needs.
Alongside this, we also provide ACC – Supported Living Services to those clients requiring assistance with daily living, including those affected by mental health issues, the elderly and dual disability clients.
This service assists people with tasks, such as accessing community activities, social and recreational groups, parenting support, education and employment options, budgeting, and dealing with other agencies.
It is designed to deliver individualised programmes to encourage people to take responsibility for decisions affecting their lives and involves personal planning to meet needs and choices.
