Services

 

Our palliative care service is provided for free, in the patients’ home or any place of their choosing.
 
This includes:
  • 24/7 nursing phone support and advice,
  • Coordination of care in collaboration with GPs and other healthcare providers,
  • Coordination of home help and personal cares,
  • Coordination of admission to funded palliative care beds at Golden Pond.
We support the patients’ family/whanau with support visits for social work assistance and counselling, grief and bereavement counselling and a grief support group who meet fortnightly at our Goulstone Rd office.
 
Our Volunteer Chaplain can provide Spiritual support.
 
Referrals
A referral to our service is usually made by a GP.
If you feel you or a family member requires Hospice services, have a chat with your GP who can assess if Hospice care is the right service for you at this time.
 
Our services are delivered by a highly trained team of clinical nurses who are supported by an administration team based at our offices at 39 Goulstone Rd, Whakatane.
 
We offer a variety of services to ensure that our patients and their family/whanau feel fully supported while they are in the care of Hospice EBOP.
