Mary Potter Hospice is a local charity that provides free-of-charge specialist palliative care across Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti.
For over 40 years Mary Potter Hospice has been committed to providing quality specialist palliative care for people living with a life-limiting illness, and to give their families or whānau any support they may need.
Mary Potter Hospice has an 12-bed Inpatient Unit in Newtown and community hospice bases in Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti. We also provide care and support to people and their families or whānau in their own homes. Along with our inpatient and community services, Mary Potter Hospice provides occupational therapy, social work, counselling, art therapy and spiritual care.
Mary Potter Hospice was founded on the vision of free hospice care for anyone who needs it, regardless of financial situation, religion or ethnicity. The Hospice has never wavered in this vision and in order to achieve this, we rely on the generosity and thoughtfulness of others.
We need the help and support of our community in order to keep our services free for those who need us most. It costs around $14 million each year to run Mary Potter Hospice, and Government pays about half.
We couldn’t do what we do without your support. We put the patient at the heart of our service, encircling them with care and compassion so they can treasure every moment. We are here for you and your family or whānau. Please help your local Hospice and donate today.
Mary Potter Hospice has a proud history of care, compassion and commitment to the people of Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti.
We have supported people with life-limiting illnesses and their families or whānau for more than 40 years, in the way they want, where they want.
