We provide specialist medical care and support services to patients living with a chronic, life-limiting illness, and their families.
Waipuna Hospice has a shortfall of $4.25 million this financial year to find in order to sustain our services across Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty. We have a nine bed inpatient unit on the banks of the Wairoa River and offer day services as well as Hospice-at-Home care by specialist community nurses at no cost to the patient. We offer equipment loan, therapeutic massage, counselling, chaplaincy, play therapy for children and young people, social work, and family support.
More about us
Waipuna Hospice provides specialist palliative care for patients living with a life-limiting illness, and support services for them and their families from Waihi Beach to Paengaroa.
Use of funds
Our service is free of charge to those living in our community with an illness for which cure is no longer an option. Funds raised through donations, special events, hospice shop revenue, grants and bequests help us to meet this target and we rely heavily on our community for their support. Thank you!
