Hospice Awareness week

Date: Monday, 13th May to Sunday, 19th May 2019

May 13-19 is Hospice Awareness Week 2019, an opportunity for communities to better understand how local hospices can help people who are dying, and their families, ‘live every moment’.

Hospice care is holistic, considering a person’s physical, emotional, social, cultural and spiritual needs. Hospices care for families and caregivers as well, both before and after a death. Most care is provided in the community, and it is completely free of charge for patients and their families.
