Bringing children's hospice care into the home
When a child has a life-limiting condition, many parents take on the role of primary carer and prefer to care for their child at home when possible. We aim to provide access to a range of regular and reliable respite, both in and away from home.
LauraLynn@HOME provides Family Support, Symptom Management, End-of-Life Care, Bereavement Support and Direct Care to children and families in the comfort of their own home. Our hands on care is provided by a team of experienced children’s nurses and healthcare assistants.
LauraLynn@HOME programme launched in June 2014 and is currently offered in two locations:
- Region 1: Dublin Mid-Leinster includes South Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare, Laois, Offaly, Longford and Westmeath
- Region 2: Dublin North-East includes North Dublin, Meath, Cavan, Louth and Monaghan
