Each year, more than a million hours go into providing district and specialist nursing, home support services, care coordination, specialist hospice palliative care, stomal and continence services and allied support services including health and mobility equipment, linen, and meals.

Nurse Maude's purpose has always been supporting people to take better care of themselves and each other and building a caring community around people who need it, in their homes. Care Coordination services are a very tangible and accurate expression of this; working collaboratively with clients and their families, other agents and contractual partners, to make sure that we continue to find innovative solutions to challenging situations. To this end Care Coordination has also supported the transition of service models in several DHB regions

Nurse Maude is also a significant investor in the future of community health care, establishing the New Zealand Institute of Community Healthcare to ensure that research and innovation in this sector is well supported.
