Nelson Tasman Hospice
How does Nelson Tasman Hospice provide culturally sensitive, individual, palliative care to all people in the Nelson Tasman region with a life-limiting illness? Through research and consultation with local communities, and with the help of volunteers like Anna Mae Angeles. With a background in the corporate sector, Anna Mae started volunteering at Nelson Tasman Hospice in July 2020, helping with administration. Now she is helping the clinical team in collating research for health workers on how to care for patients from different cultures. This includes reaching out to local networks of migrant communities to find out what the current acceptable practice is in different cultures for end-of-life journeys.“It provides me that sense of being able to do something meaningful. We think we’re giving back but actually, we get more. It’s the feeling of being fulfilled, the sense that you’re able to be at peace, that you’ve done your part in making this world a better place,” says Anna Mae.Originally from the Philippines, Anna Mae and her Jim (who volunteers with the garden team) both enjoy volunteering at Hospice because they’ve been able to meet new people in the community.Thank you to Anna Mae and Jim for volunteering with Nelson Tasman Hospice, which helps extend the reach of work done by Nelson Tasman Hospice.If you would like to volunteer a few hours a week with Nelson Tasman Hospice please contact volunteer Programme Manager, Krisca Gould on 03 546 3912 or [email protected]#HospiceCare#nelsontasmanhospice #HospiceVolunteer ...

Rural Women St Arnaud have generously donated $800 to Hospice as a result of their Christmas Market and Photo Exhibition Competition held last December at the Lake Rotoiti Community Hall. It was a great family event and the photography entries were exceptional. Craig Potton who was one of the guest judges spoke eloquently about the photographs. Thanks so very much to everyone involved.#hospicecare #nelsontasmanhospice ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to the children from the Wakefield Kea Scouts who made those colourful cards and flowers for patients receiving care at the inpatient unit. They are so colourful and full of love and will certainly bring a smile to patients and their family and whānau visiting. #hospicecare #nelsontasmanhospice ... See MoreSee Less
