What does a hospice do?

In New Zealand hospice staff and their associated palliative care and volunteer teams are skilled at helping you manage your end of life care. Hospice often provide inpatient services for respite, symptom and pain management, or support if their care cannot be provided elsewhere. At the end of life, some people may have the option to spend time in a hospice.
