Helping to create a dementia-friendly Rotorua
We’re part of the Dementia-Friendly Rotorua Steering Group, helping to make Rotorua New Zealand’s first dementia-friendly city.
Fundraising for local causes
Lezani Mayor and the team at Bupa Rehabilitation Hamilton love to help the local community and raise money for charity. Whether it’s ‘Baking a difference’, to raise funds for the Blind Foundation Guide Dogs, or wearing ‘shorts for hospice’ and hosting a raffle to show their support for Hospice Waikato, the team have been involved. Bupa match donations fundraised by employees (up to AU$200 per employee per year) helping to achieve fundraising goals.
