Programme Purpose
Advancement in technology and medical knowledge, combined with an improvement in general living conditions, has resulted in much higher numbers of older aged people and those living with chronic disease and/or disabilities. The fastest growing age group in the world, is 80 years or older. In New Zealand, the number of people aged 65 plus doubled between 1988 and 2016, to reach over 700,000. This number is projected to double again by 2046, causing growing concern about a deficit in the number of Health Care Workers suitably trained and able to provide the care required. UN statistics suggest that 15% of the world’s population live with a disability, that requires support.

Kalandra’s purpose of this Health Care Support programme, is to meet this rapidly increasing demand for qualified Health Care Assistants. Educating carers, who are able to identify and understand the needs of their clients, in order to provide the optimal care and support to enhance their daily living experience or health outcome.

There are growing numbers of vulnerable people living in the community and cared for by family or community organisations. Kalandra has identified a need for those caring for others in the community or their homes, would benefit from accessing training at this level.
