Welcome to Lake Taupō Hospice

Lake Taupō Hospice is a registered charity run by the Lake Taupō Hospice Trust, we provide palliative care to patients who are nearing the end of their life’s journey. The term palliative means alleviating without curing.

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.

And hospice care doesn’t stop when a patient dies, we continue to care and help those loved ones left behind.
