“Respectful take on a wonder woman’s story. I hope others learn as much from Helen’s Story as I did from working with Helen and her whanau. Thank you.” Kate Clarke [CCDHB]
“When a loved person is dying it is always sad – so sad. At the same time it is good that this time passes into another phase. The time at end-of-life is precious. Helen’s Story shows us the way – Helen’s way with her family and friends. She encourages each of us to find our own way. To prepare for this time when it is not immediately in front of us.
Paul and Barbara have honoured Helen and her whanau – “hearts of thousands” making her story tangible and visible, preserving their memories for the future. As always their compassion and skill underpin their work making it exceptional. I value working with them, being a small part of the group making this story. Aroha nui Ia manuia.” Valerie Norton
