We provide specialist medical care and support services to patients living with a chronic, life-limiting illness, and their families.
We have to raise $2.7 million this year to sustain our services across Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty. We have a nine bed inpatient unit on the banks of the Wairoa River and offer day services as well as Hospice at Home care by specialist community nurses. We offer equipment loan, therapeutic massage, counselling, chaplaincy, play therapy for children and young people, social work, and family support.
Use of funds
Our service is free of charge to those living in our community with an illness for which cure is no longer an option. Funds raised through donations, special events, hospice shop revenue, grants and bequests help us to meet this target and we rely heavily on our community for their support. Thank you!
Waipuna Hospice provides specialist medical and nursing care to people living with an illness for which cure is no longer an option. We provide a range of services including equipment loan, therapeutic massage, biographies, counselling, social work and family support. The majority of our patients are cared for in their own homes by our community nursing team and we have an inpatient unit and day services on the outskirts of Tauranga. We work across the Western Bay of Plenty from Waihi Beach to Paengaroa and our aim is to help our patients and their families make the most of every day.
