Kind Words

Bev, the Stubbs family and on Homer’s behalf, would like to express their special thanks to the staff at Waihi Lifecare Hospital for the caring love you give to all, and my husband Homer. Over the 10 weeks Homer was in your care you made us welcome. Your compassionate love and care greatly eased Homer’s final journey allowing us all – especially Bev – to spend precious special time with him. Waihi is so fortunate to have their facility and we sincerely hope that the people of Waihi will help to support this special place.
