Training and Development
The vision of Visionwest Home Healthcare is to be people’s first choice in supporting independence. To achieve this, we take seriously the ongoing training and development of our staff.
Great service goes beyond what you know, however. It’s about how our services are delivered. The “how” is often what sets a quality service provider apart from the rest. This is why we care about your development as a specialised home Healthcare worker.

Covid Update (August 2023)
We want to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your unwavering dedication and exceptional efforts during the challenging times of COVID-19 and the current influenza season. Your commitment to providing essential support to our clients has been nothing short of remarkable.
While we’re pleased to announce that COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, we want to emphasize that certain precautions are still necessary to ensure the safety of both our clients and our support staff.
In light of this, all Support Workers must continue to
- wear face masks when visiting clients.
- adherence to standard Infection Prevention Controls, such as using gloves when dealing with any bodily fluids, remains of paramount importance.
These measures are crucial to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for everyone.
We’d also like to inform you about a recent change in government policy settings that affects the way we handle sick leave for COVID-related absences. Now that the government have stopped reimbursements to organizations when staff needed to isolate due to COVID-19 exposure. As a result, any staff members who contract COVID-19 and need to be away from work are required to take this leave as ‘sick leave’.
More information on what to do if you have COVID can be found on this page https://covid19.govt.nz/testing-and-isolation/if-you-have-covid-19/
Stay safe, stay well, and let’s keep working together to make a positive impact.
