Home help that connects you with friends and community
Living life the way you want sometimes means asking for help. And when that help fits in with who you are and how you like to live, it increases your happiness and sense of wellbeing.
The power of community is the inspiration behind Good Friends, our new service that’s here to help you stay healthy and live well independently. Using a combination of digital technology and human intuition, Good Friends brings together skilled helpers to fit with your needs and unique circumstances.
Good Friends was recently launched in Christchurch. Other areas of New Zealand will follow.
