Information & Resources

Living with a life-limiting illness or supporting someone who is can raise a lot of questions and concerns, so here are the resources and information that we think may help during this time. We are also open to discussing your situation with you, so please contact us at anytime. Please also let us know if there is information that you would like to see listed on this page.

Te Ipu Aronui

This website is to support Māori whānau (families) to provide care to adults and kaumātua (older people) at end of life, as well as take care of whānau at the same time. We want to support whānau who may have been unable to retain their traditional care customs due to the forces of colonialism and assimilation, as well as the influence of modern urban lifestyles.
