Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Nurse Maude Hospice Palliative Care Service consists of an interdisciplinary team committed to providing holistic and supportive care to people who are living with a life limiting illness, and for whom curative treatment is no longer appropriate.

The service supports and integrates physical (tinana), social (whanau), emotional (hinengaro), and spiritual (wairua) aspects of care to help the dying person and their family/whanau attain a culturally acceptable quality of life.

The service is provided in the Canterbury community and also in the hospice inpatient facility.

The Nurse Maude Hospice is a short-term (usually 1-2 weeks) 11 bed facility.Patients are admitted to the hospice for symptom management, urgent repsite care or end of life care.

The service also provides grief, loss and bereavement support to patient and families/whanau before during and after death.

Patients can be referred to the service from any health professional involved in their care.
