Our objective is to enhance the quality of life for all those in Mid Canterbury
dealing with life limiting illness and bereavement.

Hospice Mid Canterbury is a registered Charitable Trust and an Associate Member of Hospice New Zealand.

We do not provide clinical care, but complement existing services by providing social support in the community.
Many people believe hospice is just a building, when in fact it is a philosophy of care. That philosophy extends beyond the physical needs of a person to their emotional, social and spiritual needs, and those of their family as they live with a life limiting condition. Anyone living with a life limiting condition – e.g heart failure, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, or cancer – can access and benefit from hospice services.

The goal is to help people make the most of their lives; to live every moment in whatever way is important to them.

What an amazing couple of nights we were treated to last weekend with our 'Night of the Southern Stars' concerts. Mid Canterbury turned out in force to be thoroughly entertained by our guest stars Simon O'Neill, Tim Beveridge, Tizane McEvoy, and Stephen Small, along with the wonderfully talented local choirs - Phoenix Chorus, Phoenix Rising and the MSA Mens Choir. Despite being struck down with laryngitis, Simon still managed to be thoroughly entertaining with stories and insights into his career as an international opera singer, and demonstrating his prowess on the piano! All performances were exceptional and we are extremely grateful to everyone involved, particularly our generous sponsors. We are still working on the final figure (and it's looking very exciting!)
