About Us

  • We are the Managers of Home Assistants for Seniors.  We set up the Agency January, 2014 after identifying the need in our own family for home help and support in Christchurch. 
  • We are  cousins and  have both worked in the health sector as physiotherapists.  This experience enables us to comprehensively assess the client's lifestyle, medical conditions and routine to identify where the help is needed.   We are here to support the clients and their families and instruct the Assistants on the tasks.  

 Everyone's situation is different.  We believe with a high degree of personalized assistance tailored to the individual the elderly family member has the option to continue living in their own home.

  • There is "peace of mind" for the family knowing that there is continuation of the care put in place as if the usual Assistant is unwell we ensure that the client will always have their needs met.  We  know everyone’s needs change so we have a flexible and holistic approach.
  • Home to us is comfort, warmth and familiarity; it is the place we want to be and we  want to give the elderly the same.

I can’t speak highly enough about the work that Jo and Felicity and their “care givers” are doing. Home Assistants for Seniors professionalism and the quality of their “care givers” is exceptional and my brother, sister and I (and our mother), literally, could not contemplate being without them.

Jo Steel and Felicity Wallis have been supervising and assisting with the care of my mother for the past two years.  My siblings and I all live outside Christchurch. My mother (85 years old) is in the early stages of dementia.  The work of Jo and Felicity and their company, Home Assistants for Seniors, has been essential in allowing our mother to continue to live a moderately independent life. This has provided us with the peace of mind, that Mum is being well cared for and has an appropriate level of companionship. 

I would certainly recommend them to others seeking to ensure their ageing parents (or relatives) have a safe and secure social structure within which they can live, while retaining an appropriate degree of independence and autonomy.
