Arohanui Hospice

Arohanui Hospice provides specialist palliative care for people in the Manawatu, Tararua, Horowhenua and Rangitikei regions with a life-limiting illness, and support for their families/whānau. At any one time, there are approximately 250 patients receiving specialist palliative care services in this area, and more than 860 patients and their family/whānau a year.

Our services are mostly used by people living with advanced cancer, but we can help anyone in the advanced stages of other illnesses, such as respiratory or heart disease, motor neurone disease or HIV-AIDS.

Joining in are the central city’s three Active Explorers childcare centres – formerly Lollipops Educare – on Victoria Ave, Broadway and Grey St.
