Galway Hospice Galway Hospice provides three Specialist Palliative Care Services – our Inpatient Unit in Renmore, our Community Palliative Care Services and Palliative Day Care Service.
Palliative care is an approach to care that aims to improve the quality of life of people suffering from life-limiting illnesses, and to support the person and their family.
Traditionally, hospice care or palliative care was associated with care of patients with cancer, particularly at the end of their lives. Palliative care has changed completed in recent years, and this approach to care can be equally helpful to people who are newly-diagnosed with cancer or people who have other life-limiting conditions such as Dementia, Heart Failure, Motor Neurone Disease, etc.
Specialist Palliative Care is focused on managing complex symptoms using a team-based approach.
The aim of Galway Hospice is to support people to learn to live with a life limiting illness.
We do this by providing palliative care treatment and support for patients and their families, carers and friends, during their time with us and beyond.
Our Multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, therapists, chaplains, social workers and volunteers, treat patients in their own homes, at other places of care, and in the hospice.
