The motivation behind Your Saving Grace comes from the personal experience of Director Karen Soundy, and her vision to provide seniors in the Wakatipu basin, where she has been a long-time resident, with a level of service and support that is not currently on offer.
The region is short of the services that Your Saving Grace provides, including home help, companionship, as well as post-operative and respite care for those of all ages. At a time when the Government is encouraging ‘ageing in place’, the senior population is growing and families are juggling many demands and daily challenges, these services are crucial.
Karen has herself spent many years driving to Invercargill to visit her mother, uncle and aunties, who all looked forward to her visits and scheduled many appointments around them. It was during these trips that she realised how such personal levels of care and companionship could benefit the residents of the Wakatipu.
Your Saving Grace’s biggest asset is its staff.
We employ responsible, trustworthy and caring people who have lived in the district for most of their lives, they are totally committed to their work and the quality of service we offer. You can rest assured they are competent, kind and responsible individuals, whom you can welcome into your home and count on with confidence.
