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.
 

Our Core Services

We provide a number of services to support people dealing with a life limiting illness.
Support is also available to families and carers.
All our services are free.

You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.

Dame Cicely Saunders,
founder of the modern hospice movement 1918 – 2005
