Hospice New Zealand

Hospice provide palliative care for people at the end of their lives, their families and Whanau. 

Each year, over 18,000 people access hospice services. Everything is provided free of charge and community support is essential to ensure this remains a reality. 

A unique and innovative grants programme provides Hospices with the opportunity to purchase much needed equipment. Every donation to the grant fund directly supports Hospices from the far north to the deep south to continue their work, enabling people to live every moment in whatever way is important to them. 

  • Hospice is not just a building; it is a philosophy of care. The majority of people receiving support are cared for in their homes.
  • Hospice provides care and support for anyone living with a life limiting condition,including heart disease, respiratory disease and motor neurone disease.
  • Hospice cares for the whole person, not just their physical needs but also their emotional, spiritual, and social needs too.
