We are committed to engaging with family and whanau, understanding cultural differences, rituals and practices in order to make the experience of every patient and their loved ones, memorable, respectful, complete.
In 2016 Tina Parata took up the role of Kaiwhakamaru Kaiāwhina, meaning protector of the person (client/patient) and of the knowledge (Maori cultural practices within a Hospice context). Tina’s role is to facilitate this connection, ensuring we respond to the needs of patients and whanau in the most appropriate and culturally sensitive way.
Tina is part of the broader Family Support team. Please phone (07) 552 4380 ext 237 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
