Lake Taupō Hospice cares for patients within greater Lake Taupō District including both Taupō and Turangi townships. We are members of the national organisation of Hospice New Zealand and our philosophy of ‘Living Every Moment’ is reflected in all the services we offer. “We care about quality of life, comfort at the end of life, as well as helping those loved ones left behind.’
All Lake Taupō Hospice services are free.
