Emerge Aotearoa offers flexible and mobile community based support for people who are living independently, but not necessarily alone, in their community.
This service is for people who require some additional support to remain actively involved with family and whānau, community living, education, employment and in self-management of their wellbeing. We work with people to determine their needs and to retain or regain their independence.
Community Support staff provide assistance with accessing 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 agreed by the person and their support worker and there is some flexibility to allow for urgent appointments.
Emerge Aotearoa also provides ACC – Supported Living Services for day-to-day living such as accessing social and recreational groups; participating in community activities; education and employment; parenting; budgeting and working with other agencies.
These services are for people that are affected by mental health issues, are elderly or have dual disabilities.
