About Hospice Waikato


Hospice services are for patients with any advanced, progressive and life limiting disease that require the services of a specialist palliative care team to assist in management of care and to support the people who care for them. Hospice Waikato’s services are available to all people, regardless of their ethnicity, age, culture or gender. Hospice Waikato provides services to anyone who needs them across the Waikato, King Country and Thames-Coromandel, mirroring the region also covered by the Waikato District Health Board.

While the Waikato District Health Board funds part of our running costs, we are required to fundraise $2 million dollars annually to provide our services. The shortfall comes largely from generous donations from our community and funding partners.
