Older New Zealanders told us they wanted to more control, transparency, reliability and consistency with help in their homes.
Arvida Good Friends has a subscription-based membership model unique to the sector, where the member has full control about what plan best suits them and what services they want and when. The technology enables transparency around care and costs, including for family members as well as matching helpers to members receiving care at home based on their needs and their personality.
Arvida Good Friends is powered by Lookout™ intelligent technology. Arvida Group has developed of this app-based platform for New Zealand application. Lookout™ has been successfully rolled out in Australia for the last four years, accredited for Home Care Package and NDIS funding programmes and since the advent of Covid 19, used for remote health and wellbeing monitoring by private insurance companies and government agencies.
All Arvida Good Friends helpers are fully trained to Arvida standards, inducted to the Home and Community Support Sector Standard NZS8158:2012 and in the Attitude of Living Well philosophy and practice. They have access to our online training and qualification system and are supported by care mentors, Lookout™ and a central Living Well Advisory and clinical oversight team.
