Most people with a life limiting illness want to stay living in their own home. Our community teams are here to support you to do that. Hospice specialist palliative care community teams provide a wide range of services for patients and their family, whānau and carers who are living with a life limiting condition.
We work together alongside your GP and other healthcare professionals to provide advice on symptom management, emotional care and to support you to make decisions about your current and future care. We offer different levels of care, depending on your needs and we will visit you wherever you are - you may be living in your own home or in a residential care facility.
