3. Support Groups - Advice and Help

Irish Hospice Foundation

The Irish Hospice Foundation was set up in 1986 to fund and develop specific hospice services. Since then their work has expanded to address the needs of people dying in hospitals, at home and in other care settings. They work to provide equity in access to palliative care services for all patients with life limiting illness. They also promote discussion of a broad range of issues related to dying, death and bereavement, in order to identify what matters most to Irish people at the end of life and how best to address their concerns.
