Health and disability services we offer

Tuwharetoa Health provides a comprehensive range of health services from health promotion and public health through to care for the elderly. We have lifestyle interventions including:

  • aukati kaipaipa (smoking cessation)
  • disability support
  • programmes for mental health clients
  • support and advocacy service for whānau
  • nursing services covering the areas of chronic health and child health.

We have recently secured CYFS contracts and appointed a counsellor and social worker. In the interests of whānau ora the CYFS contract is being co-managed by Tuwharetoa Health and Te Korowai Roopu Tautoko. Te Korowai Roopu Tautoko has a long history of social service delivery in Taupo.
