Hospice is not just a building, it's a philosophy of care. Our goal is to help people make the most of their lives.

Each of us faces death as uniquely as we live our life. Our experience tell us that most people hope that when death comes to us or someone close to us, it will be peaceful and free of pain.

We provide specialist palliative care for people with cancer and non-cancer life-limiting illnesses, at all stages of their illness. We believe that everyone deserves to have the best quality of life possible. The care we provide for our patients is holistic, caring for not just your physical needs but also your emotional, spiritual, and social needs too. We care for family/whanau and friends as well, both before and after death. All our services are free of charge. The sooner we’re involved the more we can help.
