Perhaps because of misconceptions as to how a hospice can help, we are often not contacted early in a person’s illness. But the sooner we are contacted, the more we can help you support your patients and their whānau.
If you’re unsure which services may best suit your patient, please contact us and we would be happy to discuss more about our services with you via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone on (03) 578 9492.
