Begun in 2007, Elias House is a specialist intensive residential rehabilitation service based in Whangarei. This service works with 6 clients who would otherwise spend long periods of time in the acute mental health ward and who need 24 hour support. The service is provided in a block of 2 bedroom flats.
Staff are a mix of Registered Nurses, Social Workers, and Community Support Workers.
Elias House is designed for clients with high support needs. Access to this service is solely through Northland DHB, after assessment by a Service Coordinator.
