What is Lingap’s goal for our older population?

As a service provider for home help and personal care assistance, what is Lingap’s goal for our older population?

The ageing population of New Zealand is increasing. Most of them still prefer to live in the comfort of their own homes and do more with their lives. But as we know, there are limitations to what they can do daily.

Our goal is for our older population to be able to enjoy life with dignity and respect while keeping their most valued assets.

Home help and personal care goes beyond provision of care and assistance. It is a mutually beneficial relationship to continue living a quality life in the comfort of their own homes.

Lingap Home Care is about providing physical care, emotional support and companionship to elderlies who are generally healthy and prefer to stay in their own homes. It is the provision of non-medical services that will allow the elderly to live independently and stay connected with society. We are committed to assigning a companion that suits you and your whanau/family. We take into consideration your preferences in a companion, your needs and location.

Our companions are qualified and experienced but more importantly, compassionate, trustworthy and have a genuine desire to provide quality care and service.


What are the benefits of having home help and personal care assistance for elderly?

The primary benefit of home help and personal care is to provide a sense of security and peace of mind to both the elderlies and their families knowing that there is someone whom they can rely on to ensure the safety of the elderly when necessary.

Other benefits include:

  • Relief for primary caregivers.
  • Ease on the mental burden for elderlies who may feel they put pressure on their loved ones.
  • Regular socialization for elderlies which is crucial for their mental and cardiovascular health.
  • Cognitive stimulation for the elderlies through games and conversations help delay effects of dementia.
  • Reduction of feelings of loneliness and depression.
  • Better sleep habits from regular light exercise or physical activity.
  • Elderlies maintain familiarity and comfort.
  • At present, ageing in place is the safest and healthiest choice.

Home help and personal care assistance is key to an improved quality of life for elderlies, promoting their independence and dignity by ageing in place.
