Mary Potter Hospice

 

For 40 years Mary Potter Hospice in Wellington New Zealand has served those in our community who need palliative relief, giving access to compassionate and quality care, when and where it is needed. Over the course of the year I have worked on a project chronicling both patients and care co-ordinators of the Hospice day unit, in the hope of highlighting the incredible work done in supporting those within our community who need it most. My hope is to illustrate the courage, strength and humanity I have been privileged to witness in the most trying period in a persons life. I also hope to break down some of the barriers we as a society have placed on our thinking of death.
