As Chief Executive I would like to welcome you to our website and I hope you will take the opportunity to use it to learn more about the comprehensive range of services we offer to our service users and about the supports we provide for family members.
It also describes how you can support us in our work in various ways and all such support is very much appreciated.
We believe that the people of the Mid West whom we serve deserve only the best and that is what we seek to achieve through continuously improving our policies and practices in the area of service delivery. Our objective is to make a positive difference to people’s quality of life and this is a role that we take very seriously.
The overall infrastructure at Milford Care Centre has changed and expanded dramatically over the years since the establishment of Milford Nursing Home by the Little Company of Mary in 1928. Today, as a progressive and developing service, we still uphold the core ethos of the Little Company of Mary which is reflected in our Mission Statement, which also sets out the Centre’s core values. At all times our objective remains that we continue to deliver the highest quality and safe care to our residents, patients and visitors.
We, as a Voluntary Service Provider, are fortunate to enjoy a very strong working partnership with the Health Service Executive and other key stakeholders.
Furthermore, we feel privileged that our community supports us in such a major way through our many volunteers and the ongoing fundraising support that we receive.
New Development Project
In February 2015, the Minister for Finance, Mr Michael Noonan, T.D., formally launched MCC’s New Capital Development Project, due for completion in the first quarter of 2018. This building programme will involve the expansion of Milford Hospice to 34 beds and its reconfiguration to all patient single occupancy rooms, as well as increased overnight accommodation facilities for families.
In tandem, bed capacity in Milford Nursing Home will expand from 47 to 68 beds, again with a reconfiguration to all resident single occupancy rooms.
The key driver for this new development is to ensure that our physical infrastructure is of the highest standard in order to fully meet service user needs and as such ensuring that a patient’s respect and dignity is maintained at all times.
I would like to acknowledge and thank the people of the Mid West for their wonderful and generous support through the years; support which we continue to need in these challenging economic times.
