Future Plans

We are building Tui House for North Rodney

Click here for a virtual tour of the facility. We expect the building to be completed before the end of 2017.

If you would like to know more about the building project or the capital campaign, please contact Campaign Manager Lesley Ingham:

Hospices receive no government funding for capital projects, which means we have to raise the full project cost of $7.5 million. Having paid for the land and accumulated some reserve funds, in July 2014 we set out to raise a further $5 million from individuals and organisations.

As of July 2017 we have raised $4.95m of our target.

This is mostly due to the incredible heart of people in our community. Some of the money has come from trusts but about 100 individual givers have pledged almost $3 million to make sure the new hospice gets built. They have responded to dedicated donors who have shared their enthusiasm for the project and invited others to be part of it too.

Because our hospice is part of a charitable trust, virtually all donations to the building project are tax deductible and most of our donors have been able to claim a third of their total gift back from the IRD. We offer major donors the opportunity to dedicate a part of the building to a family group or organisation.

Background

Warkworth Wellsford Hospice is a community-based service giving free specialist palliative care and family support to people from Puhoi to Mangawhai.

Most people want to spend the end of their lives at home with the people who matter most to them, and most can achieve this if they are supported by visits from our nurses, counsellor and social worker. Patients who need inpatient care have free access to the units at Red Beach and Takapuna.

If we are to keep pace with the incredible growth in our community, we need to offer more services that keep people close to their homes and community – nurse-led clinics, day respite, day programmes and therapeutic treatments – and Tui House will give us the space to do this.

Our teams currently work from two old dairy factory houses that are not suitable for patients to come to – in fact, sometimes a nurse has to consult with a patient in the carpark because the patient can’t manage the steps!

Our vision

We want the hospice to be a building at the heart of our community, with a real sense of ownership by the locals and flexible spaces that anyone can use – for volunteer meetings, small fundraising events and special interest or business groups. Hospice is an organisation that celebrates life and we want our building to reflect that.
