Advice and Advocacy
Our social worker can offer practical information and advice for day to day living on matters such as child care, support networks and strategies for stress management and self care.
They can also assist with advice around eligibility for funding; act as an advocate with government departments and consult on a patients’ behalf with agencies such as the Needs Assessment Service.
We also have a Kaiawhina liaison available for Maori and Pacific Island patients and whanau, who will act as a guide to the Hospice programme of care and provide support or advocacy as required.
