The North Westmeath Hospice provides specialist palliative care services ensuring that people who are coping with a life threatening illness, death or bereavement can access appropriate homecare and support. Palliative Care is an approach which improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems physical, psychosocial and spiritual.

Palliative Care

  • Provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms.
  • Affirms life and regards dying as a normal process.
  • Intends neither to hasten or postpone death.
  • Integrates psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care.

  • Offers a support system to help the family copy during the patient’s illness and in their own bereavement.
  • Uses a team approach to address the needs of patients and their families including bereavement counselling if indicated.
  • Will enhance quality of life and may also positively influence the course of illness.
  • Is applicable early in the course of illness in conjunction with other therapies that are intended to prolong life such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy and includes those investigations needed to better understand and manage distressing clinical complications.
