Doane House Hospice promotes living every moment, and offers individuals diagnosed with a life threatening illness, compassion, support and hope.
Our programs and services are designed to support the individual by meeting their emotional, spiritual and physical needs. This gives the individual the ability to make the right decisions for their care, through being able to navigate the system, access the right care at the right time, and help support their family and friends through caregiver relief and bereavement.
Doane House Hospice is a volunteer based organisation and part of an interdisciplinary team that works towards helping our clients live life to the fullest with dignity, hope and comfort. Please click here for a short video on Doane House Hospice.
