All of us, at some stage, will support a patient in hospital and rely on these rooms to relax, recharge and better support our loved ones.
Teams will be out in the community in March at the below sites, asking what you want in the refurbished rooms, so pop along and have your say!
We want Auckland DHB whānau rooms to feel comfortable, practical and nurturing, so we’re fundraising to rejuvenate them. There’s a huge amount of co-design work happening to ensure rooms meet families’ needs, while also respecting their cultural significance.
