Our Assistants

All our Assistants have empathy for the elderly, are kind, trustworthy and genuinely enjoy helping others. When recruiting our Assistants we look not only for experience but compassion, common sense and a sense of humour.

Our Assistants are police checked and reference checked and then matched to the client in terms of "like mindedness" and common interests. Some work as little as 2 hours/week right through to full-time or live in positions.

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.
