Services for older people

As you get older, you may need some support to stay healthy and live comfortably.

The Ministry of Health and district health boards fund the services listed below to help support you as you age:

  • Support services for older people are available to help you stay independent, participate in your community and continue to live in your own home, as long as it is safe.
  • Care Plus is available if you have health problems and need extra support from the health system – it ensures you get comprehensive care at a low cost.
  • You can access information about the certification and auditing of rest homes. This means that if you need to move into a rest home, you can make better-informed choices about residential care.
