Valuing Our Staff

Our staff are our greatest assets

Staff at Te Hopai are provided with continuous training and support to help them achieve personal and professional goals.  

Te Hopai is proud to have many staff who have worked for the organisation for over 10 years. The developed skills, continuity and caring attention to detail makes Te Hopai a true ‘home’ environment for our cherished Residents.

Staff are rostered carefully to ensure that there are maximum numbers of staff at key times (such as breakfast and morning showering). This rostering allows staff to take their time attending to resident’s personal daily needs in a relaxed and friendly manner.

Staff are encouraged to spend time talking and getting to know everyone in their care, building deep relationships that support well-being and happiness for all.

Our families value our staff too. Follow this link to read about recent donations by families to Te Hopai Staff



The greatest gift is the gift of time

“A society that does not value its older people denies its roots and endangers its future. Let us strive to enhance their capacity to support themselves for as long as possible and, when they cannot do so anymore, to care for them.”

— Nelson Mandela

Volunteering time and energy enriches the lives of Residents at Te Hopai. We have traditional roles for volunteers involving activities such as reading groups, music, games, crafts, assistance at meal times and other activities.

We also need drivers and helpers to assist in Resident outings.
