Hospice Waikato provides specialist palliative care services to people and their families/whānau who are facing a terminal illness.

Delivered by a team of health professionals and volunteers, our palliative care services aim to alleviate physical and psychosocial symptoms to enable those who are terminally ill to live well.

Because you want the best for your loved ones Hospice Waikato’s aim is to provide care, comfort and the best quality of life possible.

Our approach is holistic. Our team recognises that you may need help with many things – both physical and emotional.

You matter because you are you and you matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do everything we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die.Dame Cicely Saunders, OM, DBE

Making a Referral

Hospice Waikato services are for people who have reached a palliative stage in their illness where the focus of treatment is on comfort and quality of life rather than cure and for the people who care for them.
