About Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services
Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services has two truly special facilities, Harold’s Cross and Blackrock Hospice. Together with the community outreach that cares for people in their homes, we are able to provide specialist end-of-life care to hundreds of patients each year; we also supply rheumatic and muscular disease rehabilitation and other specialist services for older people.
Our aim is to provide a top quality health service through physical, psychological, social & spiritual support with a mix of skills, delivered through a multi-professional collaborative team approach.
On Friday 7th & Saturday 8th June 2019, we will be selling Sunflower badges and merchandise in various shops and shopping centres around the city. We also have a number of Church gate collections taking place throughout June.
We have a core team who help us each year but we always need to find many additional helpers who are willing to volunteer.
