Waipuna Hospice Moves to Alert Level Two

As you may be aware, the Bay of Plenty is now in Alert Level Two. We take the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff very seriously at Waipuna Hospice, so we are taking steps to ensure everyone’s wellbeing.

As the global pandemic continues and should the situation across our country change we want to reassure you that we are equipped to change levels quickly and efficiently if that is needed to ensure safety of our patients, family/whānau, staff and the wider community.

We recognise that Covid-19 has created unique challenges for patients and their family/whānau and we would like to encourage you to access the services of our Family Support Team who offer social work, counselling, chaplaincy and cultural support.
