Presbyterian Support Central’s philosophy

At Presbyterian Support Central we believe every person deserves respect, compassion and dignity regardless of age, background or belief. We believe people need to maintain control over their lives, wherever they live and whatever their age and circumstance.

Our philosophy, regardless of the service, takes a holistic and person-centred approach. We believe a person’s physical, spiritual, emotional, and cultural needs are equally important.

For Enliven that means our focus is on creating elder-centred communities. We embrace an elder-directed model of care, the Eden Alternative; taking every opportunity to bring companionship, spontaneity, fun, meaning and purpose into the lives of elders.

As well as providing high quality clinical care, Enliven supports people to continue doing the things they love in a way that’s right for them. We strive to maintain, or return, the sparkle to the eyes of those we serve.

For Family Works our philosophy of service supports our vision of an Aotearoa, New Zealand that is the best place to raise children – a place where families flourish. We recognise that children flourish when families and whānau function well, and so our services focus on supporting the whole family.

Our high quality social services focus on working in partnership with individuals and families to support them to make positive changes using the strengths and resources they already have, to make good choices and build positive relationships, to reach their potential and to keep all children and young people safe.
