June 2017 Recipients
Hamilton-based Waikato Community Hospice Trust offers a free home support service for patients in Hamilton, Cambridge and Ngaruawahia. It received $2,525.40 to purchase four shower chairs for its service.
Nurses from the hospice made more than 6000 home visits last year to provide specialised care for patients at a challenging and emotional time in theirs, and their family’s lives.
The Hospice Waikato is reliant on community funding to be able to provide these free services and this grant helps it to continue the work it does in the community.
