Our Care

 

Hospice Waikato helps people who are living with a terminal illness to live life to its fullest, while providing comfort and specialist palliative care.

We provide compassionate, specialist palliative care to people who are dying, while supporting their families and caregivers.

In some cases those with a terminal illness may be well cared for by their primary care providers, such as their General Practitioner and or District Nurses, and will not require specialist palliative care. However, there may also be times when the physical and psychological symptoms being experienced are complex and beyond the scope of primary care providers. In these cases referral to Hospice Waikato for specialist palliative care is appropriate. Our services and care enable patients to stay at home for as long as possible, surrounded by the people and the things they hold dear.

We believe that everyone deserves to have the best quality of life possible. Hospice care looks after the whole needs of a person, through medical and nursing care along with emotional, social and spiritual support. Hospice care is provided free of charge.
