What does North West Hospice do?
North West Hospice provides palliative care services for people with life limiting illnesses where they are residing, be that at home, in a nursing home, hospital or in our hospice. Palliative care involves meeting an individual and assessing their needs and those of their families, spiritually, physically, socially and emotionally. These needs are then addressed with the aim of improving quality of life for the patients and their family. In order to provide this care, North West Hospice has a team of professionals including Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and chaplaincy services.
The hospice is a quiet, calm environment where staff have time to spend with you, get to know you, isten to you and ensure that all your needs are met. In addition to the 24-hour medical and nursing care, we offer a complete range of services such as social work, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and spiritual support.
The palliative care team is a team of Nurses, Doctors and Social Workers who work. We work closely with your GP and Public Health Nurse, who continue to have overall medical and nursing responsibility for your care.
Our Hospital Palliative Care Team based in Sligo University Hospital – provides palliative care to patients at Sligo University Hospital and their families, and provides support to the hospital’s medical and nursing teams.
