Hospice Services

Palliative care, when commenced immediately upon diagnosis of a terminal illness, can sometimes extend and will nearly always improve the quality of life. Patients are generally more mobile, comfortable and happier.

Palliative care is not specific to cancer or the elderly – Hospice services are provided free of charge for all types of terminal illnesses and regardless of a person’s age, ethnicity, means or religion...

We care for the whole person – not just our patients’ physical needs but also their emotional, spiritual and social needs, if they desire it. We support the family as well, during the period of illness and beyond.

Please help us to keep our In Patient Unit open
IPU BED-485
Our community helped us to build our In Patient Unit back in 2009 - now we're asking for help to keep it open...

Building a local IPU was just the start of the journey. It costs over $2.5million each year to keep the Unit open and as less than a third of this is funded by government, the rest must be raised from the community which holds this service so dear.


If you'd like to help, please consider making a monthly donation in support of your local In Patient Unit. You can download a brochure or sign up here or call our fundraising team on (09) 421 9180 to learn more
 
Notices
The 11th annual Hibiscus Hospice Art Exhibition and Sale was held over Queen’s Birthday - it was our biggest and best yet, with over 400 works for sale or auction and just over $30,000 raised! That's a phenomenal result after a phenomenal amount of work so our sincerest and deepest thanks go to organiser Vicki Lambert and the Women's Committee for putting on yet another outstanding show.
 
Every now and again special people come together and pull off something extraordinary...
Recently Mathew White and Jade Brown put together the inaugural Fulton Hogan Touch Tournament in support of Hibiscus Hospice; the participation was amazing with 16 teams made up of staff members and sub contractors.
On the day they were almost rained out – but they played on, had a lot of fun - and raised $1,582.61
Mat and Jade tell us next year they intend to make the tournament even bigger - what an incredibly generous group of people!
Thank you so much on behalf of our patients and their families...
