Why choose us?
Every one of our patients and their families deserve to spend whatever time they have together as best they can. Our care teams do everything possible to give them that opportunity, offering relief for the patients' symptoms, practical and emotional support for all the family, opportunities for therapy and leisure, and, when the time comes, the very best care at the end-of-life stage.
Our hospice provides a wide range of Specialist Palliative Care Services, which include ~Community Palliative Care, Inpatient Care, Day Care, Bereavement Support and Education. All of this care is offered completely free of charge.
We depend heavily on voluntary contributions to help us continue to offer the highest quality of care to our patients and families, at what for them, is a very difficult time. You can help us to do this.

Charity of the Year
Many companies choose a Charity of the Year each year in order to realise their Corporate Social Responsibility aims. This means the chosen charity will benefit from all fundraising efforts and staff initiatives during that particular year. Employees can become involved in existing fundraising events (through volunteering or supporting) in aid of Galway Hospice, or can organise their own events. The fundraising department will assist the company throughout the year with providing promotional material and publicising upcoming events. The company can partner the charity for the year, with the added benefit of being seen to be socially responsible.
