We are here to provide the highest quality specialist palliative care service we can to people living with a terminal illness and to give their families any support they may need.
The care we provide acknowledges the uniqueness of each person and we strive to work in partnership to meet patient and family needs according to their cultural and spiritual upbringing.
The Hospice has an 18-bed Inpatient Unit in Wellington, and
Community Palliative Care bases in Wellington, Paraparaumu and Porirua. We also provide care and support to people and their families in their own homes.
On a day-to-day basis, the Hospice will work closely with you, your General Practitioner (GP) and other health professionals to provide your care and support. Along with our inpatient and community care, the Hospice provides Occupational Therapy, Social Work and Counselling and Spiritual Care services.
The Hospice also employs Education, Quality Improvement,
Administration, Fundraising and Research staff, and relies on the assistance of many Volunteers who donate their time and energy to assist in many aspects of Hospice services.
