Lingap, in Filipino, means

Compassionate Care

Lingap Home Care is a company that provides non-medical home help and personal care/assistance to our ageing loved ones within the Auckland Metropolitan Area.

Our Story

We are a group of friends who got together to help address a need in New Zealand.​ It is innate in Filipinos to be caring and respectful especially towards our elders. This, we believe, will be the strong foundation of how we deliver our service. We are keen to share this caring culture with our clients.

Being in New Zealand as our second home has compelled us to engage in worthwhile endeavours to give back and serve the community. What started as a job has been transformed into a passion.

The Need

While there is a tidal wave of aged New Zealanders coming in, a valued client once told us that retirement living is not for every aged person in New Zealand. There is a good number of older people who prefer to stay and accept companion care within the confines of their home for as long as feasible. This has been confirmed by the findings in the NZ Aged Care Report 2010 where “ageing in place” was mentioned as the first preference for a long-term ageing strategy.

The Challenge

The main concern is the reliability and consistency of the home help and personal care/assistance service that is delivered by some providers. Furthermore, most prefer a private and personalised approach to cater to the needs of their aged mums and dads.

Our Solution: Consistent & Reliable Companions

Our purpose is to deliver reliable and consistent service with COMPASSION, and alongside building of TRUST, will enable our ageing loved ones to live their later years with DIGNITY.

We, together with our companions, are guided by the following uncompromising values:

  • Compassion
  • Respect
  • Quality of Care
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Creativity

Responsible Employment

We are committed to give our clients the highest level of service. To do this, we have a pool of qualified companions.

In order to retain quality companions, we adhere to strict employment standards. We provide fair wages and a company environment where the well-being of the companion is looked after resulting in better productivity, creativity and ultimately, consistent and reliable service to our clients.
