Karen from Wellington:
"Hayley at Dignity First, was fantastic in helping me and my family understand the types of services that were available when my Dad was diagnosed with Dementia. Even though my Dad was based in Christchurch she was able to point us in the right direction and provided prompt honest advice. I felt very supported by Hayley and can’t thank her enough. I would highly recommend the team at Dignity First."
Katherine from Christchurch:
"With a father in hospital and both my brother and I living in different cities we were struggling to know where to get information on after care, assessments required and who to talk to. I was recommended to talk to Hayley from Dignity First to help us navigate and understand the resources available.
Hayley compiled a list of links, phone numbers and details on what questions to ask the relevant agencies. This enabled us to work quickly to mobilise the necessary resources and organise the care required for my father. My brother and I had no idea where to start and with the Dignity First information Hayley provided made the whole process less stressful when we were trying to manage the care from afar. Great value for money and I highly recommend this service to anyone who is time poor and looking for practical professional help for their older family member."
Hayley from Wellington:
"WOW, that’s such a thorough report and such a quick service. So much valuable information that would have taken days to compile by ourselves. You’ve added so much value and we’re very grateful for your help! You’re amazing."
Heather from Wellington:
"What I liked about Dignity First, was Hayley’s warmth and ability to listen actively. I was wanting advice about future care for an elderly relative: availability, costs, finding services or a place which would suit their personality and needs.
Within 48 hours I’d received a full report, giving me current information, contacts and options to work on."
