Today, the demand for Hospice Waikato services across the region continues to increase, putting additional demand on the services and funding. Hospice is not fully funded and every year we need to raise over $5million from our community to keep our service free of charge. In the past year, Hospice Waikato has had over 1,600 patients referred, including 46 children.
