Hospice care is available at Cahercalla for patients with active and progressive diseases which cannot be cured.  Patient focused care is provided by a team of trained and committed professionals who endeavour to provide the patient and their family with the highest standard of care.

Since becoming a community hospital in 1995 Cahercalla has always been dedicated to providing hospice care to the people of County Clare close to their family, friends and family doctor.

The service, which started out as one bed in the nursing home, has been developed over the years and is now delivered in a state of the art purpose built unit within the hospital which was officially opened in March 2008 by the then Minister of State at the Department of Health and Children, Maire Hoctor.

Our team is supported by the Consultant led specialist unit at Milford Care Centre and the local Home Care Team who provide specialist medical and nursing input to ensure our patients receive the highest standard of care.

Cahercalla, a registered charity, offers hospice care free of charge. The cost of running the service continues to increase each year as we care for an increasing number of patients. With only part of the running costs being funded by the HSE, we rely on the generosity and goodwill of the local community to raise the necessary funds to allow us to continue caring for those in need of the service. Each year this money is raised in many different ways including membership of our weekly draw, fundraising activities and through donations.
