The sooner we are involved, the more we can help
We understand that living with a terminal illness is taking a step into the unknown for patients and their families. The team at Warkworth Wellsford Hospice is available for professional advice, guidance and support.
To get hospice helpYou or a family member can contact us directly by calling (09) 425 9535. Your GP, medical specialist, district nurse or Cancer Society nurse can also provide a referral.
Perhaps because of misconceptions as to how a hospice can help, we are often not contacted early in a person’s illness. But we can provide care right from the point of diagnosis – and the earlier we are involved, the more we can help to make a real difference to the lives of patients and those who support them.
Our care focuses on maintaining quality of life and providing comfort.Most people like to be cared for in their own home, close to family, friends and memories. Warkworth Wellsford Hospice has dedicated, qualified nurses who provide care to any person with palliative care needs wherever you call home - a family residence, nursing home, assisted living facility, inpatient unit or hospital.
The team of nurses support patients, families and carers by offering nursing care and support, helping to reduce the strain of coping with the situation. They work in partnership with district nurses, specialist palliative care nurses and other community services.
Warkworth Wellsford Hospice - and our parent organisation North Shore Hospice - is a recognised centre of excellence for specialist palliative care - even providing training for other medical professionals.
