Making life more meaningful with Harcourts Foundation
At any one time throughout West Auckland, Hospice cares for more than 150 patients, both in their own homes and at Hospice House in Te Atatu Peninsula.
With the help of Harcourts Blue Fern Realty Limited, through the Harcourts Foundation, we received a grant for more than $5,000 to be used to purchase two new syringe drivers and lock boxes for patients.
These crucial pieces of medical equipment help control severe pain experienced by our patients and allows them to spend a more meaningful time with their families.
Karen Talbot, Specialist Palliative Care Services Manager, who has worked at Hospice West Auckland for six years, says it can be a challenging job, but she and the team strive to make as positive a difference as possible to their patients’ lives.
“We are hugely thankful to the Harcourts Foundation for this. It means a lot to us and the people from all walks of life, young and old, who we care for.”
