About us

Our history

In 2018 our hospice sites in the Hibiscus Coast, North Shore and Warkworth/Wellsford areas were brought together under the Harbour Hospice brand.

By combining these three areas we are better able to meet the needs of our growing population, and continue to improve, share skills, expertise and extend the services we provide.

Hospice provides care for 1 in 3 people who die in our community

Harbour Hospice provides specialist, palliative care for families living in the Hibiscus Coast, North Shore and Warkworth/Wellsford communities.

We provide compassionate care, free of charge, working primarily with patients, families and carers in their homes, and also within our three hospice sites.

From nursing and medical care, counselling, social work, cultural and spiritual support, physiotherapy, day groups, training programmes and more our goal is to help people live every moment in whatever way is important to them.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you believe in or where you live, Hospice care is free for you.

We are partly funded by the Waitematā District Health Board for 52% of our operating costs, so we rely heavily on the generosity of our communities to keep services free and meet current and future needs.

Our team of fundraisers, retail specialists and dedicated volunteers work hard to raise money for services through events, donations and our retail shops.

The kind and generous support of our community truely makes a difference, helping people young and old to live well until they die.

We couldn’t do what we do without the amazing support of our local community

Kia hora te marino, kia whakapapa pounamu te moana, kia tere te kārohirohi i mua i tou huarahi, ā, ko tou hoa haere ko te rangimarie

May the calm be widespread, may the ocean glisten like greenstone, may the shimmer of light dance across your pathway and may peace itself be your travelling companion
