You matter because you are you and you matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do everything we can not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die.

Dame Cicely Saunders, OM, DBE

Hospice is an International Movement with a specific philosophy of care; it is not a building. The Hospice philosophy accepts death as the final stage of life. Hospice affirms life and does not hasten or postpone death. Hospice care is available to all terminally ill patients, not just cancer sufferers. Hospice care is available to all who seek help at no charge, regardless of their age, race, religion or financial circumstances. The goal of Hospice is to enable patients to continue an alert pain free life and to manage other symptoms so that their last days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones.

Hospice Wairarapa is a registered Charitable Trust (CC41499) formed in 2009 after a call for the reintroduction of Hospice services by over 3,600 residents of our region. Our Hospice is owned by the people of Wairarapa, for the people of Wairarapa. We are a totally independent organisation, and a member of Hospice New Zealand. We operate day services five days a week from our beautiful home ‘Te Kowhai’ at 59 Renall Street in Masterton.

Become part of our Giving for Living Club, to help support our free services to patients and their families on a palliative journey in the Wairarapa.
