Support for patients, families/whānau and carers

The Family Support team is an integral part of Arohanui Hospice; caring not only for patients but also for all those involved and touched by life-limiting conditions.

We recognise that each patient and family/whānau is unique and approach these journeys with their own resources and challenges.

The Family Support team consists of professionals who specialise in assessing and providing patients and families/whānau with:

  • emotions/feelings
  • spiritual care
  • adjustment to changing situations and expectations
  • psychological distress
  • social support
