Every year APM helps thousands of New Zealanders through community services
We’re proud to deliver a range of services across the country. Our team works with every individual and their ACC case worker to ensure they get the right service for them.
Access to our services will depend on your location.
Support Needs Assessments
APM delivers Support Needs Assessments to work out the level of support you need.
After the assessment, and depending on your needs, you can get help from a range of professionals including nurses, occupational therapists and social workers.
The aim is to help you recover from injury, stay independent and maintain your quality of life.
Our needs assessments can help if you:
- have a physical or intellectual injury or disability
- have experienced an injury and are getting help from ACC
- are over 65 and need extra support with your day-to-day life
Social Rehabilitation Needs Assessments
Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Lower North Island, South Island
These assessments help you live independently and safely by identifying the support you need after an injury.
There are two types of assessments:
- Integrated rehabilitation assessments: look at a range of issues and determine the support that will suit you best
- Single discipline assessments: a more specific assessment that looks at one particular issue
Housing Modification Assessments
