Milford Care Centre gets approximately 75% of its annual budget from the HSE and the balance must be raised every year, primarily through fundraising initiatives undertaken by the local community, donations and bequests.
This money enables us to provide care to patients in the Hospice, the Day Unit and in their own homes and to support families and friends throughout, and beyond, that person’s involvement with us.
Our New Hospice
In February 2015 a Development Project was launched which includes the building of a new Hospice with a target opening date of late 2017. It will have 34 beds (an increase of 4), all single rooms and additional overnight accommodation for families who wish to stay. This is a major undertaking but is one we feel is necessary, not only to provide the additional space but also to improve the environment for patients. This will give them, and their families and friends, more privacy at a time they need it most.
While some funding is already in place the Centre will have to raise the balance so any support, no matter how little, that you can give us to make this project a reality will be much appreciated.
