Are you, or is someone you care for, dealing with a life-limiting illness?
Hospice Mid-Canterbury is here to help and support you.

Hospice Mid-Canterbury provides support for those with a life-limiting illness, their family and their caregivers. All services are free and are available throughout the Ashburton district between the Rakaia and Rangitata Rivers.
We do not provide clinical care, but complement existing services by providing support such as transport, sitting, recording life stories, counselling, massage, Reiki, and reflexology.
Hospice Mid Canterbury is a registered Charitable Trust and an Associate Member of Hospice New Zealand.
Our goal is to help people make the most of their lives; to live every moment in whatever way is important to them.

Hospice Mid-Canterbury – Here when you need us.
