Te Omanga chalks up 32 years Volunteers keep hospice care for terminally ill free of charge Te Omanga celebrated its 32nd birthday on Tuesday, September 6, with an early-bird breakfast at the hospice in Woburn Rd atten- ded by staff, board members, hos- pice volunteers and special guests. The hospice is a charitable trust and the only provider of specialist hospice palliative care to those with a terminal illness in the Hutt Valley. It is due largely to the support of the community that hospice care has remained free of charge to those who need it over the past 32 years. The hospice opened the doors to its first patient on September 6, 1979. It supported 90 patients and their families in its first year. Te Omanga not only supports those with terminal cancer, but all people with a ter- minal illness, enabling them to live every moment to the fullest. Last year, 30 per cent of patients referred to the hospice had terminal non-malignant diseases, such as respiratory, heart, lung and neurological dis- eases. Today, Te Omanga provides care and support to 160 patients at any one time. The main focus is to support patients to stay at home, where they feel most comfortable. All hospice services can be provided to patients at home, including counselling, social work, art ther- apy, touch therapy and Maori liaison. Some 48 per cent of patients on the Te Omanga pro- gramme are supported to die at home, surrounded by their family. Homecare nurses make more than 8200 visits to patients at home each year. Te Omanga s recently intro- duced Partnership programme also aims to provide specialist con- sultation and support to local GPs to enable them to continue to care for their own patients who have been diagnosed with a life- limiting illness but do not yet need a full 24-hour specialist pal- liative care service. Te Omanga has 450 volunteers providing essential services such as gardening, housekeeping, re- ception duties, floral arrange- ment, retail shop assistants, fam- ily support, biography, governance, maintenance, drivers, kitchen support and fundraising. The volunteers provide more than 30,000 hours of time and talent each year and save the hos- pice $700,000 in costs through their donations.
