Any Questions?

How do I refer myself or a family member to receive home care support from Huakina?

Firstly, you or your whānau member must visit the GP and ask for a home care referral. They will ask some questions first before making the referral.

From here you will be contacted by a Needs Assessor who will assess you or your whānau members needs, be sure to tell them you wish to have your services provided by Huakina Development Trust. Once we have received the referral we will make contact with you.

What do you mean by Personal care?

Personal care means we help with assisting our client's personal needs, which affect their daily living, for example, assistance with showering, dressing, mobility (transfers in and out of bed) and exercises (habilitation/rehabilitation), meal preparation, meal planning and support with eating or drinking.

What do you mean by Household care?

Household care means we help to keep the home tidy and safe for our clients if they are unable to do so themselves, for example, cleaning, laundry, vacuuming, mopping and dusting designated areas, kitchen/dishes/fridge wipe out, home organisation and decluttering.

Is there an age restriction for clients?

No, there isn't. However, most of our clients are elderly, but we are open to any ages with disabilities who are in need of our support.

Is this service Māori based only?

No, we are open to receiving referrals from anyone, no matter the background.

If I'm a relative looking after my whānau member, can they still be referred to you?

Yes, we are able to discuss with the needs assessors hiring you as a family-paid caregiver if you or your whānau member would prefer this option. Or we can allocate one of our amazing staff to take care of them as well.

What is your code of rights?

Please see the HDC website for the code of rights for health and disability service users

If we go back into lockdown, will the client be cared for?

We will only continue to provide personal cares during a lockdown and only if the client or staff member is not sick.

Are your staff trained?

Yes, all our staff are NZQA/NZQF qualified.

Where is your main service hub?

Our main office is located at 15 Roulston Street, Pukekohe.
