Hospice Vision and Values
OUR VISION / TŌ MĀTOU WHAKAKITENGA
Te pairuri tāngata i te wā o te ora, i te wā o te mate
Supporting people with terminal illness to live and die well
OUR PURPOSE / TŌ MĀTOU PŪTAKE
We provide care for people with terminal illness, enabling them to live their lives as fully as possible. We work in partnership with our community, offering education, support, care and advice to family, whānau, carers and health and social service professionals, through a patient’s illness and following death.
We support our patients wherever they want to be – that may be in their home, in a residential care home setting or, if their needs are complex, within our inpatient unit. Where we can, we aim to keep people in their environment, symptom-free, for as long as possible.
We affirm life and believe in making the most of it, neither hastening nor postponing the natural progression of death.
