About Us:

For the last 30years Te Kahu Pairuri Hospice Taranaki has been providing specialist palliative care for patients who have a life-limiting condition.  Care provided by Te Kahu Pairuri Hospice Taranaki enables patients to achieve the best possible quality end of life and provides support to their whanau and family.  

Care is free of charge and provided whenever people need it - at the Hospice inpatient unit, at home or at a comfortable alternative.

Why do we need to fundraise?
  • Te Kahu Pairuri Hospice Taranaki is only partly funded by Te Whatu Ora/Health NZ - Taranaki (approximately 43% of what is needed per patient), and to continue to provide a range of specialist palliative care services free of charge - we need to bridge the gap.
  • We, therefore, look to our community - the people of Taranaki who each year make up the shortfall in funds to enable hospice patients to live every precious moment.
  • With your help Te Kahu Pairuri Hospice Taranaki can continue to provide care, compassion and support to hundreds of patients and their families, free of charge.
Where your money goes ...

Proceeds from Calves for Hospice will be used here in Taranaki to provide quality care to patients and support their whanau/family.  The services provided include support of the patient in the community, inpatient care, carer support, 24-hour advice, pharmacist, outpatient clinics, day programme, social work services, family support, and bereavement support.  

How does it work?
