‘Legendary’ rose garden unveiled
The Olympic and Commonwealth Games gold medallist attended the garden’s opening at the Manurewa-based palliative care facility, until recently named: Hospice South Auckland.
The Valerie Adams’ Rose Garden is designed to be a sanctuary for people to celebrate and remember loved ones cared for by hospice.
Valerie has a special attachment to the hospice which looked after her mother during her battle with cancer.
“Our experience with Totara Hospice was amazing,” Valerie said at the opening. “Hospice provided huge relief and support to our whanau in what was the toughest time in our lives.
“It was there for mum through every step of her journey, and made us feel loved and cared for. It was like having a second family and for that we are extremely grateful.”
Totara Hospice South Auckland is home to a nine-bed in-patient unit specialising in palliative care.
