Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.

Real stories: Rebuilding after an injury

Three people – Simone, Tracey, and Ross – talk to ACC about rebuilding their lives, working, and driving after getting serious injuries.

These stories explore how people retain control after an injury, and look at services such as Supported Living and Supported Employment to help people stay independent.

Supported Living

Supported Living can help you become independent and make decisions for yourself. It is a long-term programme that focuses on the things that will make a difference to your life.

It can help you meet your goals such as finding a home to live in, studying, getting a driver's licence, and working towards getting employment.
