Duncan Family


Ko te hapu o Duncan kua roa ki te manaaki i te hunga hauora. Mai i te 1945 i te wa tuatahi i whakatuwhera ai a Tamati raua ko Lady Duncan i tetahi hohipera i Silverstream, muri mai i te Duncan Home i Whanganui, kei te haere tonu ki te whai oranga ki te oranga o te hunga mate.

Ko nga hua mai i ta raau kariwhenua Otiunga, kua whakawhiwhia ki o raatau tahua atawhai.

I roto i nga tau kua pahure ake nei, kua nui nga takoha a Polio NZ Inc ki te whakahaere i nga kaupapahau e hiahia ana ki nga mea kaore i taea e etahi atu moni te utu. Ka ruarua to matou nama ki te hapu o Duncan, ehara i te mea mo te awhina i hoatu e ratou ki nga roopu taitamariki i nga ra o nga mate urutare, engari inaianei kei te whawha nga polios ki nga Painga o te materoto i o ratau tau.

Hua mai i nga tono o mua

Kua tukatukahia nga tono me nga kaiwhiwhi e whakaratohia ana ki nga pihini mo nga kaitarai moenga, nga papaa haere, nga raina, nga papaa horoi me nga kiore, nga rakau piki, te piriti roera me te maha atu o nga tono.

“All these appliances assist in improving the daily living activities for people who have had polio and are of great benefit to them,” the Board has announced. “It is clearly obvious that we all want to stay mobile, active and independent for as long as we can. There remain some applications that need further assessment and investigation to make sure of the best outcome for the recipients.”

“Please pass on to the Board of Management my grateful thanks for the grant to allow me to purchase a new walking frame. I am so pleased with the frame, I knew the old one was wobbly, worn and hard to unfold but didn't realise just how bad it was until I got the new one!”
“On behalf of my father, my mother, and my sister, I would like to thank the Board of Management of the Post Polio Society of NZ (Inc) for the cushion for my father’s wheelchair. I would also like to thank the Sir Thomas and Lady Duncan Trust Fund for making the funds available to the Society.”

“She is very grateful for your generosity and assistance as she unfortunately did not meet the criteria for urgent Enable funding for the ramp. It has made such a big difference in her life and to her independence and she is very happy with it.”

He rapua hou i whakauruhia ki te kainga o te kaiwhakamahi roera

“As I live alone and am now permanently in a wheelchair it has become more difficult to perform many of my previous tasks. I am no longer able to use my electric cooker as the switches are well out of my reach. The grant I received was used to purchase a certain type of microwave which is more suitable. I also had a shelf made at the correct height for it to stand on. This has made life simpler to manage and I hope to continue to live alone for some time yet.”

Tino motuhake

What do you do when doing up your buttons becomes impossible? Within a day of receiving the request, a gadget specially made for buttons was purchased from the Disability Resource Centre. After some practice the recipient successfully got the knack of using the button hook. He had polio in one arm and hand and managed fine until he injured his “good” hand and needed the extra help of the button hook. A small item made life easier for him.
