Nursing care

If you need care from a visiting nurse for everyday wellness or to recover from an accident, surgery or ill-health, Arvida Good Friends can help.

When you need at-home nursing for everyday wellness or to recover from an accident, surgery or bout of ill-health, Arvida Good Friends can find someone you’ll like with the right sort of nursing experience. It means you don’t need to leave the comfort of your own home or go to a clinic to get professional nursing care.

All our home nurse helpers are qualified, dependable and easy to get along with. As well as providing care services, your nurse helper thinks about your total wellbeing - your happiness is just as important as your health.

You can have private nursing care at home to help with ongoing conditions. Or you can have a short-term arrangement, until you’re well enough to manage on your own again. Hours and frequency of visits are flexible, to fit in with your needs.

If you are already getting help from the DHB providers, but need a bit more daily support than you've been allocated, we can provide top-up/extra private services. We work positively with all government funded home care providers, communicating and collaborating for the best outcome for you.

Here are just some of the in-home nursing care services you can ask your Arvida Good Friends Nurse Helper to provide:

  • Washing and showering 
  • Skin monitoring and care
  • Medication 
  • Dressing change
  • Wound monitoring and care
  • Post-surgery care
  • Post-accident care
  • Catheter care and other continence services
  • Help with exercises prescribed by a physio
  • Foot care

These services are part of Care at Home membership. Your Arvida Good Friends Care Lead will work closely with you and the health professionals supporting you to develop a tailored help plan and schedule that will meet your specific needs. They will then help you to identify exactly the right person from our pool of approved helpers.
