Caravan spreads hospice message
A caravan parked outside Te Puke’s Waipuna Hospice store wasn’t a sign of freedom campers taking over.
The Waipuna Hospice caravan was outside the store on Thursday with hospice community nurses Judi Hodgson and Rachel Morris and child and family therapist Melanie Gilbert-De Riof.
They were there on one stop of a week-long series to coincide with Hospice Awareness Week.
The visit was an opportunity for the public to chat to Waipuna Hospice’s staff who can help demystify hospice, answer questions and distribute information to take away.
Waipuna Hospice had a bucket list theme for the week, springing from the desire to encourage people to live life to the full. People visiting the caravan were encouraged to jot down a bucket list idea and go into the draw for spot prizes.
