The Kaumātua Services were established in 1991 to ensure kuia and kaumatua have their independence and dignity; and, that their self-worth is maintained as they live in their own home or with whānau.

We provide a range of activities that are mentally and socially stimulating and recreational and therapeutic benefit.

These services are delivered through hauora wānanga, the development of a whānau health plan, face-to- face sessions with individuals and face-to- face sessions with whānau.
