Welcome to Lake Taupo Hospice New Zealand
Our hospice offers palliative home care services and support.
At Lake Taupo Hospice, care means around-the-clock support for patients and their families/whanau.
“You matter because you are you. You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.” Dame Cicely Saunders, founder of the Hospice Movement (1918 – 2005)
We are a registered NZ charitable trust. Our team provide free-of-charge home care services, palliative care and support for patients with life-limiting illnesses. We are members of Hospice NZ, the national hospice movement that ensures every New Zealander has access to quality palliative care.
Our hospice receives some funding from the Lakes DHB to help run our palliative home care services. However, as it costs just under $1 million to operate our hospice care annually, we need to fundraise at least $500,000 every year. Please help us by donating money, time, goods or by leaving a bequest in your will.
Taupo Hospice Care – Living Every Moment
Anyone who is dying has the opportunity to celebrate their life with the help of our hospice. Therefore, living every moment is reflected in all the services we offer. We care about our patients’ quality of life, their comfort and their wellbeing. Hospice care doesn’t stop when a patient dies, we continue to care and help those loved ones left behind.
To provide leading palliative home care service, our nurses and hospice volunteers travel extensively throughout the district, which includes northern National Park, Turangi, Kuratau, Taupo, through to Tarawera on SH5.

Hospice is a philosophy of care which extends beyond the physical needs of a person to their emotional, social and spiritual needs and those of their family.
