Welcome to Custom Care Nursing!  

My compassion accompanied with extensive managerial, financial and health services experience have enabled me to establish both Support Link (2008) and subsequently Custom Care Nursing (2012).

I was born in Upper Hutt, New Zealand, moving to Hawke's Bay to be located centrally in 2008.

Treating every situation as unique, considering whanau and the individual Client makes Custom Care Nursing stand out from the rest.

My continuous ‘great ideas’ certainly keep Head Office Staff on their toes, along with constantly reviewing and ensuring we are providing an excellent service in every aspect.

Doubling annually since 2008 is proof in itself that we are providing a quality service, ensuring both Clients and staff are part of the family company.

I drive from my Equestrian Farm and Vineyard each day to Head Office in Napier, I also enjoy travelling around the North and South Islands visiting Clients and our front-line staff.  My door is always open, and calls/visits are welcomed and extended to all.

I ensure I always have my finger in the pie – whether it be answering the phone, coordinating, payroll – allowing me to ensure that my vision is transpired throughout all aspects of the Company.  I love spending time with my children and horses.

I enjoy Custom Care Nursing’s fast paced environment and I like to think we make a positive difference in people’s lives – both staff and Clients!

I have watched Custom Care Nursing evolve and I am proud to be able to share my mother’s (Ali Brittain’s) passion for providing an exceptional service to our Staff and Clients. 

Having studied for three years at Victoria University of Wellington, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in marketing and management, I am excited to take Custom Care Nursing into a new generation of Health Care with the most advanced technology, fresh skills and ideas.

As Registered Nursing General Manager, I ensure our Nursing Clients and Registered Nurses nationally are supported. 

I enjoy talking to people with different values and beliefs and learning how these can benefit our Clients, Registered Nurses and Support Workers. 

In my spare time, I like to attend Zumba classes with my friends, have down time with my family and ride my horses. I also love travelling!

Executive Assistant
Email: Trish@customcarenursing.co.nz

I am the Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive and our General Manager for Registered Nursing.  Previously my roles have varied from working for the NZ Fire Service, the Education Sector through to the Legal World as a personal assistant. 

Working for CCN is great! Its exciting and rewarding knowing that what we do here really impacts positively on people’s health and wellbeing.  As part of a family based business, the staff here all care deeply about giving 100% to ensure that exceptional service and care is always received by our clients.  Each client is individual and treated with aroha and respect.

In my spare time I like to get out and about walking around lovely Hawkes Bay with friends, stopping for coffee or even a nice glass of wine in the sun. Also love baking, especially bread (work in progress…)
