Cranford Hospice started in Hawkes Bay in 1982 with a handful of volunteers. Today, we have around 60 paid staff, 350 volunteers and every year we care for 600 patients and their families.
Our goal is to help people make the most of their time left on their final journey, to help them live every moment whether they are at home, in a rest home or come for a short stay with us in our eight-bed inpatient facility.
Cranford's care covers practical help, as well as emotional, spiritual, physical support.
Our highly-skilled and dedicated team includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists and family support staff and we are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to talk through any concerns, offer advice or help manage symptoms.
Our services are free regardless of age, ethnicity, means or religion.
We are a registered charity and operate as part of Presbyterian Support East Coast. The Hawkes Bay District Health Board funds around 60 per cent of our running costs with the remaining deficit coming mainly from the generous donations from our community.
To lead palliative care in the Hawke's Bay District Health Board region.
With respect, partnership and aroha, we will enable those with a life-limiting illness to live every moment whilst dying, and will support their family and whanau during the time and in bereavement.
Service with Excellence, Commitment, Integrity, Respect, Stewardship.
