Hospice Tairawhiti provide community based hospice care for the people of Tairawhiti, from Morere to Potaka.
Hospice Tairawhiti provides community-based hospice care for the people of Tairawhiti, from Morere to Potaka. Hospice or palliative care is specialised care for people living with life-limiting conditions, where there is no reasonable hope of cure.
Our focus is on improving quality of life for the patient and providing support for whanau. While pain relief and symptom control is often a focus, our delivery is based on Sir Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Wha model, supporting the physical, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of care. Ongoing support for whanau is offered after the death of their loved one.
Each year we receive over 180 new referrals and make in excess of 4,000 visits.
While hospice care is free to those who use it, it is not free to provide. Our contract with the DHB covers approximately 70% of our operating costs, leaving us to raise around $350,000 from the community every year.
Please help us continue to provide our services free of charge by making a donation.
