Friday October 23 2015 04:37 PM

25th - 31st October 2015

The theme of this years campaign is: Quality Care – where it’s needed, when it’s needed.

A Palliative care approach...

  • Can be provided in many different settings – at home, in a nursing home, in hospital, or in a hospice – depending on each person’s needs and preferences
  • Aims to achieve the best possible quality of life for people with serious illness
  • Is beneficial for anyone with a non-curable  illness, regardless of age or condition
  • May be suitable for a number of years, not just the weeks and days at the end of life
  • Supports family, friends and carers both during an illness and afterwards.

More information:

This week aims to increase public understanding of palliative care is and being coordinated by All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC).
