Nursing Guild supports The Irish Hospice Foundation

The Irish Hospice Foundation is a national charity striving for best care at end of life for all. They believe that everyone should receive the care and support they need as they face dying, death, and bereavement.

They work in every county in Ireland and rely on voluntary fundraising to support and maintain this work.

Nursing Guild nurses are often called upon to support individuals with end-of-life care and so we recognise how essential these services are, particularly to those who cannot access the right care perhaps due to costs or availability of nurses in their area.

A quote from an Irish Hospice Foundation nurse

Our fundraising is to support Nurses for Night Care

Our fundraising goes towards the Nurses for Night Care service for people dying with illnesses other than cancer. Nurses for Night Care enable people with diseases like dementia, motor neurone disease, advanced respiratory disease, heart failure and end stage kidney disease to receive expert nursing care and support at night in their own homes in their final days.

It also provides reassurance and respite for families and loved ones caring for someone at home.
