About Us

  • Felicity and Jo 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 for the elderly 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.
