Amitabha Hospice Service

Amitabha Hospice Service coordinates free compassionate companionship and practical support to elderly and incurably ill people of any age in their own homes. The service is provided by specially trained and supervised volunteer support companions throughout the greater Auckland area. 

Based on the Buddhist principles of kindness, integrity, equanimity and service, each family member and staff member is accorded equal respect and compassion with regard to their individuality and uniqueness as members of the larger universal human family. Amitabha Hospice is dedicated to developing and maintaining the highest quality of compassionate care in cooperation with other professional community services.

Our amazing volunteers come from all backgrounds and from all over the city (and the world) and are essential for Amitabha Hospice in providing support to many people in Auckland. Our small coordination team provides volunteer training and ongoing support.
