How does Mycare work?

Mycare is changing the way people find support in New Zealand. Not only are we helping people to find the support they need in their own community, we’ve also built tools to help them manage their ongoing care needs.

Mycare founders Mark Jeffries, Laurie Hilsgen, Rob Stewart and Chris Mathews first started working on the Mycare concept in September 2013. From there, the idea grew into New Zealand’s first online marketplace connecting people to a nationwide network of helping hands.

With thousands of people registered with Mycare, we are now New Zealand’s largest online community for home support services.

Industry partners

Mycare is committed to working with health care industry partners across New Zealand
to ensure we can support as many New Zealanders as possible to find the right help at home.
