Our specialist nursing team provides support and care in the community to people from Waihi Beach to Paengaroa 24 hours a day, seven days-a-week.  This service allows patients to remain in their own home with their family and among friends and neighbours.  The dedicated nursing team is supported by a Palliative Specialist who also sees Tauranga Hospital palliative patients in conjunction with our hospital liaison nurse.  Every day, our nurses are out across the district visiting patients at home.  They check on the patient’s wellbeing and medication, discuss any problems or concerns the patient may have, and review the individual care plan so that the best possible comfort level and quality of life can be achieved.
