Hospice South Auckland offers a comprehensive hospice/palliative care service. Our services are free to all patients and their caregivers, thanks to the generosity of the people in the community who make donations and bequests to help meet costs.
We support people living in the South Auckland area. This covers from Mangere, Pananma Rd (Mt Wellington) to Bucklands Beach in the north to Karaka, Drury, Ararimu and across to Matingarahi in the south.
Hospice South Auckland is a registered charity (CC21683). The District Health Board provides approximately 70% of our total operating costs. The remaining $2.68 million plus each year, is raised through donations, hospice shop income and fundraising.
Our services include:
Community palliative care
An In Patient Unit with 9 beds
Counselling support for patients and family
Education and training
Day stay unit
