Shore project - Your new Hospice
Your new Hospice home in the heart of the North Shore is under redevelopment. Can you help us reach the finish line?
If you have recently driven past 7 Shea Terrace in Takapuna you would have seen our ambitious redevelopment project in action!
With the support of our community through very challenging times we're making great progress, but there is still work to do to ensure that we're able to meet growing demand and continue to deliver our unique model of care now and in the future.
Harbour Hospice provides free specialist palliative care to more than 360 people each day, through our Inpatient Unit, Community Palliative Care Team and support groups. Demand for palliative care across our region is expected to increase by 50% in the next 14 years, and 90% in the next 40 years.
Your ‘revamped’ local hospice will be a modern, peaceful space where patients, caregivers and families will benefit from world-class services and the very best compassionate care and support that we’re known for.
We’ve been humbled by early support from key supporters and trusts. However, we now need the whole community to get behind us and help finish what we’ve started.
LATE 2022 / EARLY 2023
Our urgent need
After seeking advice from health service planning consultants, respected local business people, our own staff and volunteers and, most importantly, patients and their families, redeveloping our current site is the only way forward.
As well as needing to ugently reclad our Inpatient Unit, increased demand for palliative care across our region means that, by as early as 2034, we will need to support at least another 300 North Shore patients and their families each year.
We’re already feeling the impact of this unprecedented population growth and aging in our community.
How is it funded?
The project is funded through a significant contribution from our Development Foundation and a capital fundraising campaign.
We’ve been humbled by early support from key supporters and trusts. However, we now need the whole community to get behind us and help finish what we’ve started. Your support is crucial for the success of this urgent redevelopment.
I thought hospice was a place you go to die, but in 24 hours I was a different person. Hospice helped me get back on my feet.
