About us

EASIE Living opened in 2016 to support the Manawatū – Whanganui community with advice, equipment and information. The name EASIE comes from Equipment, Advise, Support, Information, Education.


This anagram spoke to our purpose as a place that could support our disabled and elderly customers and their whānau to live every day lives.


Easie Living is owned by Enable New Zealand Limited and holds the Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People Disability, Information and Advisory Service contract for the Whanganui region. The team work in partnership with Firstport.co.nz, a website which delivers National Disability Information and Advice Services contract.


Our Sensory Room opened in 2020 to provide a safe environment to our community in which to stimulate or soothe the senses through touch, sound and light.  With the support of local parenting and Autism organisations, the sensory room came to life.

Team Leader

I joined the Easie Living whānau in 2017 after 20 years in the healthcare
sector in pharmacy. While I’ve lived most of my life in Rotorua, I’m now an enthusiastic
Palmerstonian with a passion for our community.

My fiancé and I have a lifestyle property with highland cows, kunekune pigs, chickens, cats and our precious dog Kobe. What I love most about working at Easie Living is meeting new people and sharing solutions that enable our community to live good lives
every day.

Retail Assistant

I started with the Easie Living team in January 2022, bringing with me 20 years of retail
experience and a love of creative arts. Having spent most of my life in the
Manawatū, I love supporting our community. It’s heartwarming that through
working together with a customer, we can find the products that will help them
in and out of their home and improve their independence.

 With four children, six beautiful grandchildren and three cats, I spend my outside of work timewith family and crafting. I enjoy knitting, crochet, journaling, scrapbooking,
and love to dive into a good novel after work.

Professional Advisor

I started here at Easie Living in 2019, I have the honour of being the Occupational Therapist based in the store. I moved over to New Zealand from the UK with my husband in 2005. We have a beautiful daughter together along with a menagerie of animals
that keep us busy.

I am here to support customers with navigating the various health and disability pathways. I really enjoy meeting new people and helping to make a difference in people's lives.

I host workshops and talks here at Easie Living so our community can learn about services that can help support them and run various groups, such as the caring for carers support group and continence workshops. I also work with Lesley visiting
different community groups to educate people on home safety, fall prevention
and managing incontinence.

Clinical Service Advisor - Mobility Outreach Service

While the Easie Living store in Palmerston North is my base, as our Outreach Specialist, each day I could be anywhere in the Manawatu - Whanganui region up to the
Hawke’s Bay, down to Otaki and over to the Wairarapa.

I started at the Easie Living Centre in 2016 and became in charge of our Outreach Mobile Service the next year. Working in this area I have had the privilege to meet many of the elderly and disabled people in each community. Providing them with products, equipment, and information to help support them and their whānau.

 I get so much joy from helping people gain back their independence and be engaged in their community once again. I live near the beach, which is where I spend a lot of
time boogie boarding in the summer with my gorgeous grandchildren and daughter.
