North Haven Hospice care and support is for people of any age and with any terminal illness or life-limiting condition, where the focus of treatment is on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure.

People may be referred as soon as a diagnosis is made, not just near the end of life. In fact, many patients say they wished they had become involved with hospice sooner than they had.

Our services are free of charge and available to people living in the Whangarei District or south-east of Kaipara District including Mangawhai, Kaiwaka, Maungaturoto, Topuni and Oruawharo. Our In-Patient Unit (IPU) is available to any hospice patient living in the Northland region.
