Galway Hospice supports Palliative Care Week

Galway Hospice are delighted to support Palliative Care Week which is organised by the All Ireland Institute of Hospice & Palliative Care (AIIHPC). Palliative Care Week takes place from Sunday 13 to Saturday 19 September 2020.


Palliative Care Week aims to raise awareness of the difference palliative care can make to people with life-limiting conditions, carers and families throughout the island of Ireland. The theme and tagline ‘Palliative Care: In this together’ reflects this. Quality of life is sustained where all supports for a person with palliative care needs are mobilized, including the wider community alongside health and social care, which has been a feature of the community response to COVID-19.


Palliative Care requires a broad range of professionals, family carers, and communities working together to support the person with a serious health condition and the person close to them.
