Tōtara Hospice provides free palliative care services to the South and South-East Auckland area. Our community of 520,000+ people is one of New Zealand’s largest and most culturally diverse. Tōtara Hospice provides multi-disciplinary, specialist palliative care, to those living with a range of life limiting diseases including cancers and other diseases e.g. Motor Neuron Disease. The integrated services we provide recognise that those who are dying have different needs at different times of their end of life journey. Our approach ensures people get the right care at the right time by the right team in the right place and that their families/ whānau are supported throughout. As a hospice we offer dignity, calm, affirmation and holistic care and support for persons who access our services and for their whānau; understanding that while death is inevitable, dying unsupported is unacceptable. Tōtara Hospice is a $8.5 million a year operation and receives $5 million from the government each year. The remainder of the costs needed are raised through our 6 retail stores, fundraising and events.
