Ngā Kaupapa – Our Purpose…

Totara Hospice has just entered a new phase – we call it Generation 3. We have an integrated care management style that follows and supports the patient’s journey at all points, and which is underpinned by a Te Whare Tapa Whā approach (a holistic Māori health model) where the team collaborates in partnership with the patient and their families/whanau, applying clear care pathways or programmes to each episode of care. Our multidisciplinary staff work across all professions, and roles are exposed to the entire service continuum. The team is small (~120 staff) and close knit, working at the top of their scopes of practice across each role. A contemporary and agile organisation, we swiftly adapted to cope with the COVID-19 situation, ensuring uninterrupted inpatient and community services, and maintaining our commitment to never let anyone die alone. The pandemic has left us leaner and braver, without losing sight of our compassion and duty of care for others. Learn more about the post
