Why is Hospice's palliative care more important now than ever?
As we know those who are elderly, frail, and/or with underlying serious illness are most at risk from COVID-19.
Since our Level Four alert was announced, our Community Nurses have been working tirelessly in the community to ensure that patients receive the very best care. We are taking every precaution to keep patients safe and families and caregivers reassured and supported.
There are many things we still donโ€™t know with the situation changing daily but sadly one thing we do know is that COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on our ability to raise funds.

Now more than ever we need your help to keep our services available to our patients
All of our Hospice Shops are closed. Our fundraising events have been cancelled and community fundraising has stopped. Hospice Waikato is forecasting a loss of revenue in excess of $1 million dollars.
As an essential service during this lockdown, our staff and nurses will continue to put themselves at risk by continuing to provide our service to people who are living with a terminal illness.
We are very aware that this is a difficult and stressful time for everyone but we need your help. Our need is greater than ever before.

Can you help us? Please remember Hospice through the Covid-19 pandemic.
