Hospitals & Services
Palliative care is a holistic approach to the care of people with progressive incurable disease, that aims to prevent and relieve suffering. It can benefit anyone with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, and is centred around achieving the best possible quality of life for that person.
Specialist palliative care services in the community are provided by the Nurse Maude Hospice Palliative Care Team. For further information see www.nursemaude.org.nz/nursing/hospice
