Hospice and Harcourts – an unwavering commitment to Helping New Zealanders ‘live every moment’

For the sixth year in a row, the Harcourts Foundation has renewed its commitment to the Hospice New Zealand Grants Programme.

Established in 2017, the Hospice New Zealand Grants Programme has seen more than $300,000 granted to hospices throughout the country so they can purchase much-needed specialized equipment.

This year, thirteen hospices around New Zealand have benefited from $30,000 in specialized equipment and new technology thanks to recent grants provided by the Harcourts Foundation and its supporting business owners.

Wayne Naylor, Chief Executive of Hospice New Zealand, says the equipment bought with the grants makes an enormous difference to the quality of life of people, providing support and comfort when they need it most.

“Having spent nine years running the clinical services of a large hospice, I know just how important the specialized equipment is to support the care of terminally ill people, especially to keep them at home with loved ones.”

The ongoing cost-of-living crisis and underfunding by the government have hit the sector hard, so now more than ever, this ongoing support is making a difference.

“On behalf of all hospices around the country, I want to say thank you to Harcourts for such unwavering commitment in helping New Zealanders with life-limiting conditions, and their families, to live every moment. Thank you for all you do for hospice already; your support is invaluable.”

Waipuna Hospice explains the impact the grants have made to them and their patients:

“Today, a patient’s life is a little brighter. With the purchase of a syringe driver and protective case, the Harcourt Foundation has given the gift of comfort and relief to a patient with a life-limiting illness, providing symptom and pain relief. Hospice community nurses agree that a syringe driver is the single most important piece of medical equipment they have to help improve a patient’s quality of life. A huge thank you to the Harcourt Foundation for their compassion and concern for the dying in our community. Thank you for the difference you make.”
