HomeCare 1st Choice in Supporting Independence

About Us

Living at home, surrounded by your own possessions, is a comfort that everyone values. But sometimes this can become difficult. Special needs that can come with injury, ill health, disability, or advancing age can make it harder for people to maintain their independence.

This need is at the core of Baptist HomeCare’s Mission: ‘Together; preserving independence, dignity and quality of life for people living at home requiring support.’ Assisting the aged, or those with ill health or disabilities, to live independently in their communities is central to VisionWest Community Trust’s mission and the core work of Baptist HomeCare.

Baptist HomeCare has been in operation for over 25 years. In 2016, VisionWest Baptist HomeCare purchased The Salvation Army’s HomeCare division expanding its reach throughout West Auckland, the North Shore, the Waikato, Rotorua and surrounding areas and also in the bay of Plenty.

A network of over 1000 support workers deliver care in the clients home to over 7500 individuals in need, with the focus of support around the client, and client’s family / whanau. Baptist HomeCare’s trained and empathetic support workers will respect your dignity and privacy. They are professional, reliable, trustworthy and caring, working with you to maintain your independence.

Baptist HomeCare promises that the focus of support is around the client, and clients family/Whanau.
