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.
Christmas Trees of Remembrance
Christmas can be a difficult time for families who have lost loved ones, and Trees of Remembrance are a great way to honour the memory of someone special. This year we have a Tree of Remembrance in Farmers Whanganui where you can add a decoration with a message in memory of your loved one and support the work of Hospice.
Introducing the Virtual Rembrance Tree
We are also introducing something new: a Virtual Remembrance Tree right here on our website! You can add a photo of your loved one to go with your message and the whole world can see it. It also allows people living outside Whanganui to take part by leaving their own tribute no matter where they are.
I’ve recently been referred.
If you've been referred to Hospice by your health professional, we'd love to answer all your questions and set your mind at ease.
I’m a carer or family/whanau
We're here to provide practical and emotional support for family members, whanau and caregivers too.
How can I help?
There are many ways you can support Hospice, both practically and financially. It's a great way to give back to our community.
Three cheers for New World!
