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.

We are incredibly proud to share our new campaign, This Cause is Dying, featuring Rachel Hunter with our staff, patients and families at North Shore Hospice. This campaign will raise awareness that Hospice is a cause focused on living. As Rachel states "Hospice is not just a place and it’s not just the doctors and nurses in it. Hospice is a whole service that wraps you and your family with much needed care and support." Please embrace families this Christmas with your care goo.gl/4Qphy8
