The Florence Nightingale Agency is a progressive and innovative provider of in-home care to people who are unable to support themselves. Based in Christchurch, with teams in Nelson and Marlborough, we provide well-trained carers to ensure only the best of service and care is given.

We offer a wide range of in-home care from short term help through to long term 24 hour care for people with serious injuries. 

For more than ten years, the Florence Nightingale Agency has been working with ACC and private clients and have developed a strong rapport with Families and Whanau, Case Managers, Occupational Therapists and Health Professionals.

Because we are passionate about the care of others we are committed to delivering quality at all levels. All of our carers are experienced and devoted to providing the best possible care to all our clients.

We believe that one of our strongest attributes is the genuine caring way in which we look after people. Our underlying philosophy is that our clients need our care and need it immediately. This philosophy has helped us build a strong reputation for serving people in need in our community.
