Community Health Service

Today

8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

Description

We care for the whole person, not just their physical needs but also their emotional, spiritual, and social needs too.  We care for family / whānau and friends as well, both before and after a death.  Irrespective of where they are, this philosophy of care does not change and everything we provide is free of charge.  We believe that hospice care should be available to anyone who needs it, helping people make the most of every moment, in whatever way works for them.

Care is provided at patients' homes throughout the Eastern Bay of Plenty, in consultation with their GP.

We support patients and their whānau to:

  • be cared for at home
  • live each day as fully as possible
  • die with dignity in the place of their choice

Ages

Adult / Pakeke, Older adult / Kaumātua
