Protect our Hospice team when they are out on the road providing essential end of life care
Help provide personal protective equipment for our Hospice West Auckland team to keep them safe.Auckland
Our team of Doctors, Nurses, Counsellors, and therapists travel over 91,000 km a year to provide end of life care for the community of West of Auckland. With a community of over 250,000 people, we must continue to reach and deliver end of life care to the most vulnerable, isolated and at-risk members of the community in the safest way we can regardless of the circumstance.
For our teams to be able to carry out this care safely, they need personal protective equipment (PPE); gloves, gowns and protective eyewear. Personal protective equipment such as gloves, gowns and protective eyewear is essential for our Doctors, Nurses, Social workers, and Therapists to keep them and those we care for protected when providing vital care out in the community.
To provide end of life care for our community it costs Hospice West Auckland over $7 million a year. We receive 50% of our funding from the government. The other 50% we must raise ourselves through our shops, donors and other fundraising activities. With our second-hand stores now closed, we lose a vital source of funding, as they provide 35% of our income.
With the loss of this income and the increase in other costs such as personal protective equipment for our teams, we now need your help more than ever to ensure that Hospice can continue to deliver this vital care for our community at this critical time.
If you can, please make a donation today to ensure that Hospice can be there, when no one else can.
Hospice West Auckland offers a range of holistic services and support for people and their families at end of life. We believe that every person deserves access to palliative care irrespective of their place of death.
Use of funds
Each team member will have a personal protection package which includes gloves, gowns and protective eyewear. Gloves and gowns can only be used once before a new set is needed for the following patient.
