Hospice Mid-Northland urges the Mid North Community to talk about dying

Hospices around the country are running a national campaign
to support New Zealanders to talk about death more. “We need to talk about
dying” is aimed at helping communities to reclaim their familiarity with dying
in the hope they may worry about it less.

Death seems to have become a difficult topic for a lot of
people. Many of us have lost the knowledge about what happens, what to say to
each other, and the options we have for care.

Death is a process. We tend to know what is going to happen,
and our team can support people through it. We hope that if we could talk about
it more and get more familiar with what happens, that we might all worry a bit
less.

It’s interesting that when we become pregnant we tend to
have a birth plan – yet we don’t have anywhere near the same focus for our
death – or an exit plan. It’s time we addressed this.

Advanced care planning is one such plan – It is the process
of exploring what matters to you when thinking about end of life care and sharing
that information with your loved ones and health care team so treatment and
care plans can support your wishes.

Givealittle - Helping us to help others

Hospice Mid-Northland provides all our patients with the use of vital medical equipment to ensure their comfort and safety. 
We are not funded to purchase any medical equipment.
Due to increased patient numbers we are juggling and prioritizing equipment, such as beds, pressure relieving mattresses and syringe drivers. Our replenishment plan is no longer effective with the fluctuating patient numbers and we are currently updating this. Unfortunately equipment does at times get returned broken and lately we have seen an increase in this which also adds pressure to our supply of equipment. Right now we need to purchase 2 beds plus pressure relieving mattresses and 2 syringe drivers urgently for the direct use of our patients.
