OUR GEOGRAPHY
Hospice Mid-Northland provides specialist palliative care for patients living in the mid north from Taupo Bay in the north to Towai in the south and from coast to coast including South Hokianga. This represents a population of approximately 40,000.
We are one of 38 Hospices affiliated to Hospice New Zealand.
 
OUR HISTORY
Hospice Mid-Northland was formed in 1988 under the name Hospice Bay of Islands. In 2009 the membership voted to change to its current name to better reflect the area we serve.
 
OUR FUNDING
We receive approximately 45% of our funding through the Northland District Health Board. The balance is funded through the Hospice shops and the generosity of the community through donations, fundraising and bequests.  On an annual basis we need to find an additional $450,000 to continue to provide hospice services to people living in the mid-north are.  The effective operation of Hospice Mid-Northland is also dependent upon the continuing support of our wonderful volunteers - without their support we could not provide our current level of services.
 

      

Hospice Needs Your Help

In the first of a series of advertorials, generously sponsored by G.J. Gardner Homes, you will meet one of our patients, Lui Hohaia, who wrote us this beautiful letter.  We  wish to thank Lui for allowing us to share his letter and his thoughts with you....
“I write this (letter) in appreciation and gratitude for the care and help I have been receiving from the staff at hospice, as I am suffering from pancreatic cancer.  The nurses and volunteer workers are always at hand 24/7 if and when I am feeling unwell.  They are such a wonderful group of people who give of their time and talents to care for someone in the position that I am in.  They give me that added determination to overcome this sickness that I have.  I have witnessed the care that they gave to my nephew who passed away in November 2013.  I urge people to offer their help to Hospice and staff through donations, financial or otherwise, because they are a non-profit organisation and they need our help.  To the staff at hospice, I thank you for the care that you give me.  I will be always grateful, for without your care and help I may not be here now...”  Lui Hohaia
