Milford Care Centre, which first opened in Limerick under the auspices of The Little Company of Mary in 1923, and currently is the sole provider of specialist palliative care services in the Mid-West region.
In addition to the inpatient unit at Milford Care Centre, there are 5 specialist palliative care satellite hubs in the community, delivering care near to, or in the patients’ home.
Milford Care Centre has confirmed the redevelopment of one of the satellite hubs on the Quin Road, Ennis at a time where palliative care needs are being highlighted nationwide during Palliative Care week, which takes place this week.
The community hub which re-opened following refurbishment earlier this year, supports the people of Clare, improving accessibility to specialist palliative care services in the community. This base will enable patients and their families with specialist palliative care needs, to access services locally in Ennis.
This investment supported by the JP McManus Pro Am fund, and private/community fundraising, brings specialist treatment, advice and support to you, at a local level.
This consultant led, multi-disciplinary team works in close collaboration with:
Your GP, Public Health Nurse and other community services
Your Hospital Consultant
Other agencies that may be providing care for you
The redevelopment of this centre shows continuous investment in specialist palliative care services in the Mid-West region whose goal is to support the best possible quality of life for the patient and their family – promoting comfort, quality of life, personal autonomy and rehabilitation.
Milford Care Centres’ CEO, Mary O’Brien would like to thank the generosity of the benefactors who supported the project, “ the JP Mc Manus Pro Am, local benefactors and, fundraising support from the people of the Midwest, has enabled Milford Care Centre to refurbish this facility, providing care in the community to patients and their families who are under the care of the Specialist Palliative Care Team. Care is delivered in partnership with your local health care teams, optimising quality of life or providing end of life care in the community. We are grateful to all, for their ongoing support of palliative care services”.
