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 a population of nearly 200,000 people, covering 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 MidCentral DHB and Whanganui DHB.  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.

Travel agents could have organised things better than to be in Palmerston North in mid winter, on the shortest day of the year, wearing shorts.

But the team at House of Travel bared their legs for a bit of fun, and to raise money for Arohanui Hospice.

Shorts Day for Hospice participants Alan Yesberg and Kate Harris said they had been encouraging clients to join them during the week in adding to their money bank for the hospice. READ MORE
