COVID-19 information

Mary Potter Hospice is your hospice – for the people of Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti. We are doing everything needed to support you, your whānau and friends in our care at this time.

We are facing many challenges in these changing times. But some things don’t change: our support for our patients is just as caring, as competent and as compassionate as it has always been. It’s our mission and our commitment to provide care that’s always there.

Our team of healthcare professionals work with patients, their families, whānau and carers in their own homes, in our Inpatient Unit in Newtown and in resthomes. These teams includes nurses, doctors, health care assistants, therapists and cultural liaison. However, during the Covid-19 pandemic the way we deliver care may change to ensure we look after the safety of our patients, their families, our own staff and our wider community. For example, we may use telehealth to assess and meet with patients and whānau, we might connect by telephone or we might do home visits.

Mary Potter is committed to ensuring all steps are taken to protect the health and wellbeing of our patients, whānau, carers and staff during the Covid pandemic. We will work in line with national guidance and mandates, and we appreciate and are grateful for your cooperation and assistance with measures that are in place to protect everyone.

While this situation is challenging for us all, we remain grateful for the support we continue to receive from our communities. We will continue to be there for you.
