Making the most of short and precious lives

Our Vision: "All children who need us, can access us"

Family Section

When life is short, two things become very important to families:  the quality of life and making the most of every day…….

LauraLynn is Ireland’s only children’s hospice and all our services are provided free to families. LauraLynn can help by:

  • Providing respite, transitional and crisis care for children with life-limiting conditions in their family home through our LauraLynn@HOME programme or in LauraLynn House – a home away from home.
  • Working closely with our health care colleagues in the hospitals and communities.
  • Providing End-of-Life care where necessary with on-going support for the family following the death of their child.

Professionals Section

Children with life-limiting conditions journey with many partners.  At LauraLynn, we recognise that working together is the very best way to achieve excellence in care for children.

  • Our Care Team provides care, guidance and support for children and their families; parents will always remain the  child’s primary care givers. 
  • Our Clinical Education and Research Team provide educational programmes on a range of issues to develop clinical skills and understanding to respond to the need of children, parents and professionals alike.
