Enliven Older People

Independence, activities and friendship for older people.

Supporting older people to stay independent and connected

When you see a little blue Enliven car in your neighbourhood, give it a wave! Our support workers and registered nurses ensure older people and their families are getting support and care to retain their independence for as long as possible.

At your place or our place, at your pace

PSEC’s services for older people include intensive home support for independent living, friendly day programmes in Havelock North, and a network of ACC-accredited strength and balance classes.

Intensive home support

Aims to restore the physical, mental and social well-being of older people so they can stay in their home for as long as possible. Friendly, trained support workers.

Day programmes

Activities, outings,  exercise and companionship in in a village setting at Enliven Havelock North.

Community strength & balance classes

There are 63 ACC-accredited Community Strength & Balance classes in Hawke’s Bay. To find your class call 06 281 2534 or email

How you can support Enliven

Enliven aims to make the senior years positive and empowered, an age of rich experiences and social connection. Consider a career in aged care, volunteer with us or donate to our work.

Falls prevention

Falls are not a ‘normal’ part of ageing. Community Strength & Balance classes aim to reduce falls and fractures in people aged 65+ so they can live for longer in their own homes, on their own terms. Enliven is the East Coast’s lead agency for a fall minimisation initiative driven by ACC and the Ministry of Health.
