Hospice Tairawhiti provides community based hospice care for the people of Tairawhiti, from Morere to Potaka.
Hospice or palliative care is specialised care for people with life limiting conditions. Our focus is on improving quality of life for the person and providing support for the whanau.
Our team of doctors work with patients’ General Practitioners to ensure the best possible pain and symptom management.
Hospice Nurses act as care co-ordinators and are in regular contact with patients and families to monitor their needs.
Whether it be symptom control for the patient, or support services for the family, the nurse will ensure the appropriate people are involved.
