Hospice NZ exists to lead the hospice movement to ensure that every New Zealander has access to quality palliative care.
Many people think of hospice services as just a building, when in fact it is a philosophy of care. It is true that most hospice services in New Zealand have inpatient facilities, but the majority of people are cared for in their homes.
Anyone living with a life limiting condition – e.g. heart failure, motor neurone disease, MS or cancer – can access and benefit from hospice services.
Our aim is to help people make the most of their lives; to live every moment in whatever way is important to them.
Hospice care has a unique whole person approach – which means physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs are equally important – a multidisciplinary team provides care for the person who is dying and their families and friends, both before and after a death.
Palliative Care Australia (PCA) is proud to collaborate and partner with Hospice New Zealand to facilitate knowledge and skills transfer across the oceanic region for 19OPCC.
