Treatment and support

The Auckland Hospital cancer treatment centre is about 500 metres away, over uneven footpaths and across a busy road, with lights.  We would like you to arrive safely for your treatment; either alone or with the help of a supporter. A taxi will cost $5-10.  We do have volunteers who may be available to assist you, but this cannot be guaranteed every day.

In your first week you will be asked to attend an orientation meeting where you will be introduced to and offered support from our staff, including our nurses, who are in close contact with the staff at the cancer treatment centres. We encourage you to make the most of this support (available 8 am – 4 pm weekdays).

Our psychology services and Domain Lodge volunteers are also available to you.

Our specialised library offers you a quiet place to find information about cancer.

Domain Lodge staff and volunteers can help you find your way around Auckland; its shops and entertainment.

Please talk to our staff if you have questions or concerns – they will help in any way they can.
