About Us

  • Welcome to Hospice Wanganui
Hospice is not just a building, it is a philosophy of care, and 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 tells us that most of us hope that when death comes to us or someone close to us, it will be peaceful and free of pain. We hope to face death surrounded by those we love, cared for, feeling safe and comfortable.

About Hospice

Anyone who has a terminal illness who could benefit from the free specialised programme of care that Hospice provides, can be referred to our service.  Referrals can be made by all health professionals, including your GP.  
A team of doctors, registered nurses, enrolled nurses and health care assistants with specialist palliative care knowledge, are employed to provide a comprehensive Hospice service, both in the community and in our Inpatient unit.  
We have a 5-bed inpatient unit in a peaceful semi-rural environment, with large, single, ensuite rooms.  24-hour medical and nursing care can provide for symptom control, respite care or end of life care, when this is no longer possible at home.  
The medical and nursing cares are supported by a wide array of services and programmes delivered by skilled staff and volunteers.  We also have access to community networks and service providers.

You can organise a fundraiser, or share your story or feedback with us, or just catch up on what's been happening at Hospice on the blog page.  So jump onboard and see what happens up there on the hill!  It's your Hospice - it's our privilege to look after it for you...
