Day Hospice

Living Well care

Hospice is not a building, it is a philosophy of care. Our goal is to help people make the most of their lives.



The Living Well Day Hospice is designed for Cranford Hospice patients who are living with a life limiting illness.

The motto of Hospice New Zealand is 'Living Every Moment', and our day hospice is a six week programme crafted to help you do that.

We offer a varied menu of brief 'hot' topics as well as a venue for you to meet others like yourself.

Coming to day hospice is an opportunity for you to connect with others travelling a similar journey to yours. It allows you to have time out and provides a bit of respite for your caregiver.

It is a place where you can have fun, socialise and engage in music therapy.

While you are with us, if you wish, you will have the opportunity to talk with our nurse, or pharmacist, discuss issues with our social worker, counsellor, pastoral care coordinator, and other staff who have been known to 'pop in' and play a ukulele or two. We also have a Kaitakawaenga for Maori cultural support.

We'd love to have you join us at the Living Well Day Hospice for some relaxation and living.
