Our Hauora Māori Standards

HBH has developed new Hauora Māori (Māori wellness) standards, to honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The Treaty of Waitangi), reflect Aotearoa New Zealand’s multi-cultural society and better meet the cultural needs of Māori in our aged care homes and the wider community.

We are working to implement these standards with the intention of: building a community of care that integrates Te Tiriti o Waitangi; identifying what equity for Māori in our services would look like; and understanding from Māori what services would be appropriate to support older Māori.

The founding principles of partnership, participation and protection work hand-in-hand with our 10 Eden Alternative principles. The three pillars of ‘Elders & Whānau, Community and Staff are held up by the Māori values of Te Taha Wairua (spiritual wellbeing), Te Taaha Hinengaro (mental & emotional wellbeing), Te Taha Tinana (physical wellbeing) and Te Taha Whānau (family and social wellbeing).

The recent Ministry of Health audit recognised HBH Group’s strong commitment to Te Titiri and acknowledged our commitment to the journey ahead.
