Mobile Therapy Service

The mobile service enables those who cannot come to Dove House to be supported by us at home. This service provides a range of therapies to holistically support your wellbeing: Reiki, Reflexology and Oncology Massage.

This service is for people with a life-threatening illness who are no longer able to physically come to Dove House for complementary therapies.

How do I access this service?  If you are known to us and have been coming to Dove House for therapies we will be aware of your changing needs and either one of the nurses or therapists will discuss being referred to the mobile service with you. If you have been referred to the Dove House service but are not known to us, one of the nurses will arrange a visit with you and assess your current needs prior to a visit from a therapist.

How does the service work?  The mobile service operates on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

If you have any queries, please call Orla O’Riordan or Bridget Stoneman on 09 575 4555 or email nurse@dovehospice.org.nz
