Palliative Care Support for Whānau
In collaboration with Hospice Marlborough, our dedicated palliative support Kaimahi offers compassionate, respectful, and culturally attuned support for whānau of all ages receiving palliative, hospice, or outpatient care.
This joint initiative between Hospice Marlborough and Te Hauora o Ngāti Rārua aims to ensure that Māori tūroro (patients) and their whānau experience hospice care tailored to their cultural needs and preferences, encompassing both inpatient and community-based support as required.
Our team acknowledges the importance of cultural understanding and practices during this critical time, working diligently to create a comforting and respectful environment for patients and their families.
We are committed to walking alongside whānau during their end-of-life journey, providing essential care and nurturing their spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being.
This service is for:
All whānau - no matter where they are from.
Takiri mai ra ko te ata i te tonga. Ka whariki mai te manu kua ao kua awatea. He ngākau aroha e kitea i roto inga to pito o te whare, Ngā uri whaka tupu ki te maunga teitei. E rupu mai ana e ngā hua papai, He oranga mō te iwi māori. - Nā te Kuia nā Keupe Stafford Fairest.
