Te Kahu Pairuri mai i Takarunga ki Te Hana
Covered by the cloak of hospice from Devonport to Te Hana

In 2022 we were gifted a ingoa Māori (name) that not only shows the breadth of our service area but also speaks to the care, comfort and all-encompassing support (cloak) we give to families and whānau in our care.

Translated it means covered by the cloak of hospice from Devonport to Te Hana.

We are honoured to accept this name, gifted to Harbour Hospice by Kaumātua John Marsden, in consultation with a licensed interpreter.

In alignment with the Treaty of Waitangi, we are working in partnership with mana whenua to ensure we deliver the best care and outcomes for Māori patients/tūroro and whānau.

We’re doing this under guidance from Mauri Mate (A Māori Palliative Care Framework for Hospices), and with support from our Māori advisory rōpū (Mahinga Ngātahi), Kaumātua and Kaiāwhina working in partnership to navigate Māori issues through discussion, collaboration and education.
