Whilst Hospice Wairarapa does not offer a euthanasia service, we will continue to support patients, caregivers, family and whānau in a non-judgemental and kind manner regardless of a wish for assisted dying. For more information about the ways in which we will provide this support please click here.

"Thank you very much for enabling me to receive the help that I so much needed after the death of my son. I wouldn’t be here today without your help to support me with counselling. Some days there is sunshine in my life again." "I appreciate the openness about death and the practical advice you gave me" "Just being here at Hospice and being able to cry without anyone asking why is important"
