When you donate to the local Bay of Plenty hospice, Waipuna Hospice, you have an immense impact on not only those with life-limiting illnesses but their whānau. With 834 patients across Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty in the 2021-22 period, Waipuna Hospice supported 4991 people. Waipuna Hospice assisted with 13,571 phone calls and 6,006 nurse visits. This wouldn’t be possible without your donations.
Sophie Adams highlights just how supportive Waipuna Hospice has been after Sophie’s Dad, Richard, passed away from esophageal cancer.
“When dad started to get really sick, Waipuna Hospice nurses were at our house every day, supporting not only dad but our whole family. The nurse would come and help us change him and care for him. They taught us how to care for him if they weren’t there, and they would answer our phone calls no matter the time of the day, patiently answering our questions. So even when they weren’t there, we know they were only a phone call away.
After dad died, Waipuna Hospice continued to care for us. Mum was getting massages and we were all going to counselling out in Te Puna. It was such a beautiful experience; Waipuna Hospice is such a calming place. I was coming in for one-on-one counselling, as well as group counselling with mum and my brother. Their care even carried on through lockdown with phone calls. I still have my counseller’s number so when the grief wave comes through again, I know I can always reach out to Waipuna Hospice and they will be there.”
