Description

Hospice Marlborough ensures our community has equitable access to specialist palliative care & can live & die with compassion, dignity, in comfort & peace, preferably, in their place of choice.  Our palliative care focuses on caring for the whole person, encompassing their physical, emotional, social, & spiritual needs & our highly skilled team strive to meet the needs of our community by providing in-home care and from our purpose-built in-patient unit ensuring patients & whānau receive empathetic quality care. 

Hospice Marlborough remains focused on increasing services out into the community, providing services earlier upstream to meet the increasing Marlborough community demand and we work collaboratively with our primary care colleagues and other community support agencies. Valuing individual cultural and diverse differences, Hospice Marlborough is also weaving the Mauri Mate Framework for Hospices into our approach. to show our commitment to equality and biculturalism in practice with all age groups and ethnicities especially Māori and Pasifika. 

As a charitable organisation that receives just over 50% funding from Te Whatu Ora, any resulting shortfall is due to the ongoing support of our community buying from our Charity shops, donating money/items, volunteering time, offering services in-kind, leaving bequests, or participating in our events. This continued community support and generosity enables us to provide all our services across Marlborough.
