Cranford Hospice aims to meet the emotional, spiritual, social and physical needs of people through specialist palliative care, grief support and care planning.
Palliative care is care for a person of any age who has a life-limiting condition for which there is no cure. Life-limiting conditions include heart failure, motor neurone disease and cancer. It involves supporting and helping the person to live as comfortably and fully as possible.
Palliative care can be provided at home, in hospices, and in hospitals by all health professionals. In some cases, General Practitioners, Aged Residential Care and District Nurses are supported by specialist palliative care services.
Cranford Hospice is the main provider of specialist palliative care services in Hawke’s Bay.
