Mō tātou Ratonga | About our Service
START is a rehabilitation service which provides and promotes rehabilitation of patients within their home environment for the over 65 year old, for up to 6 weeks, delivering care 7 days per week and up to three times a day.
The START model reduces the pressure on hospital beds through early supported discharge, preventing re-admissions and admission avoidance. Equally significant is the impact that START has on improving the quality of care for this group of patients.
