Caring, enabling and supporting

The principles of caring, enabling and supporting underpin everything we do. The Enliven philosophy recognises that people need to maintain control over their lives, wherever they live and whatever their age.

To be healthy and happy people need to have choices so they can make decisions for themselves; to be connected to their family, whānau friends and community; to be able to give as well as receive; and most importantly, to get practical support when they need it.

Enliven is:

  • Choice: in things that matter to you
  • Relationships: with family, friends and community
  • Contribution: satisfaction in helping others and making a difference
  • Respect: being understood and valued by others.
  • Security: help is at hand when needed
  • Activity: pursuing your hobbies and interests, and gaining new ones.
