Arohanui Hospice

Arohanui Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for people who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting condition for which there is no cure.  Our 24-hour service and care is free-of-charge and includes support for the patients’ families/whānau.

The Hospice serves the same area as MidCentral DHB, including Palmerston North City, the Manawatu, Tararua, Rangitikei and Horowhenua districts, and also Otaki. We have approximately 220 patients in its care at any one time. In the 2017/18 year, more than 1000 patients were cared for, either in our 10-bed in-patient unit in Palmerston North, or in the patient’s own home or an aged-care residence in the community.

Arohanui Hospice is partially-funded by the government via DHBs.  However, to ensure that our services remain free of charge, we need to fundraise 44% of our operational funding  -  an additional $2.82 million this financial year, which works out to just over $54,000 every week!

Our vision is to ensure that people with life-limiting conditions gain the most from life, live well and die well  -  with peace, dignity and comfort  -  irrespective of their condition or care setting.



The Entertainment™ membership gives you access to thousands of up to 50% off and 2-for-1 offers for Wellington/Manawatu best restaurants, cafés, attractions, theme parks, airlines and retail offers.
