SALLY HERARAUMATI, OUR KAITOHUTOHU AHUREA, SHARES HER STORY
"Haerenga mai, kia kore e haere tonu. He nui rawa ō mahi, Kia kore e mahi tonu".
"You have gone too far not to go further, you have done too much not to do more".
Ta Hemi Henare (Sir James Henare)
Since a very young age, I have vivid memories of my whānau becoming unwell and passing: My great grandfather's accident chopping fire wood, our grandmother's untimely death from a misdiagnosis, our mother's death as a result of poor resources and no wraparound services, our father's death because of poor palliative care, and the early deaths of our uncle’s.
These experiences were frightening, causing grief and loss at an early age. Our whānau lost their desire to live and gave their breath away.
These experiences awoke my passion to improve professional home healthcare services so that we can better support our communities in a dignified manner, supporting ngā mātāpono Tiriti o Waitangi: Partnership, Participation and Protection.
Our Healthvision waiata shares the “journey of healing from bone to skin, spirit breathe upon navigation to wholeness”. I am grateful that my whānau's journey can be redeemed by our Healthvision team – giving excellence to the health and wellbeing of all peoples.
Ake ake mo ngā aroha.
OUR HEALTHVISION WAIATA
In 2018, Healthvision embarked on a journey to develop our waiata with the support of Sally's wonderful whānau.
This waiata shares our values and reminds us of the importance of our Healthvision whānau in lending us strength (Kia Kaha) and supporting our well-being (Hauora).
It tells of the importance of our people, our unity and our shared values to make the lives of all of our clients better.
