Most Mercy Hospice patients receive specialist palliative care in their own environment — whether that be at home, in a rest home or in hospital level care — and will never need to be admitted to our Inpatient Unit. This is the main reason why the entire Auckland District Health Board region can be serviced by one relatively small Inpatient Unit
We care for the whole person. Not just their physical needs, but also their emotional, spiritual, and social needs. Patients in our Inpatient Unit, and their family and friends, are cared for by a team of specialist palliative care doctors and nurses. They also have access to the wider multi-professional Hospice team which includes psychotherapists, an occupational therapist, a spiritual care worker and a social worker
Caring for your loved one means going beyond just physical and medical support and considering their emotional and spiritual well-being. A huge part of this is you – you are important to them, so you are important to us too. We are here to give you all the help, support, and advice you need during your loved one’s illness.
Thinking to the future, when you do lose a loved one, we are still here. Offering counselling and bereavement services, which are all provided by trained therapists, our door is always open whenever you need us.
