Haere atu ra e Keri

Advance care planning ACP info for consumers
27 August 2020

‘Hoki wairua atu koe Ki te huihui o ngā ariki.’ Haere atu ra e Keri.

Today the Health Quality & Safety Commission mourns the loss of Keri Kaa, one of the faces of our Kia kōrero | Let's talk advance care planning campaign, who passed away peacefully in Te Puia Springs on 26 August.

Keri was a teacher of te reo Māori and an advocate of Māori arts and culture, and very generously shared her story with us for our campaign.

Keri lived her dream of spending her final years in her tribal homelands being cared for by the people from home’. Moe mai ra, moe mai , moe mai ra e Keri.

Ngā mihi aroha ki te whānau pani.
