The Day Programme is available on Wednesdays for community patients to come along to Te Rangimarie.
The Day programme is a relaxed, informal "safe" place to relax and have fun. It is a place to meet with people in similar situations to themselves in a safe, friendly, and non-medical environment. There is no charge to attend, and volunteer drivers are available.
Patients can participate in a variety of activities and fellowship. A sample of the many activities we do includes: coastal walkway buggy rides, cultural days, outings, music/song/dance, guest speakers, bingo, cards, quizzes, garden parties.
Day Programme allows carers some personal time, comforted in the knowledge that their loved one is being safely entertained.
Patients enjoy a delicious morning tea and lunch.
Timetable is as follows:
10 am Arrival time - morning tea is served and there is time to socialise
11 am Outings, entertainment or activities. This is for an hour until midday.
12 pm Free time, or time to attend the wellness clinic for appointment with the Hospice nurse
