Hospice Taranaki the BIG picture May 2018
Over the last 12 months we have cared for more than 630 patients and provided support for their family/whanau.
We have 83 staff working in a variety of roles, and around 620 volunteers supporting all components of the hospice service.
Our nursing team has made 8833 community visits and provided 1020 home visit after hours.
While we receive some funding from the government, we rely heavily on donations, grants, HospiceShops and community fund raising to cover the shortfall to ensure our services continue to be provided free of charge.
