Summer Raffle 2017
Support our Summer Raffle and help raise essential funds for our free and critical Nurses for Night Care Service
Most families have no experience of caring for a seriously ill loved one at home and all the complications that may happen. Our Nurses for Night Care Service helps to fill this crucial gap by allowing people suffering from illnesses other than cancer to die in peace and in comfort of their own home surrounded by their family and friends. The service is there for all. It’s for elderly people. It’s for people facing end of life in the prime of life. It’s for children and babies with illnesses that have no cure.
The average nightly cost for nurses in 2016 was €320. We funded 2,027 nights at a total cost of €649,171 for 600 patients last year.
The demand for our Night Care Nurses is rising every year but our funds to pay for it are at breaking point. The cost this year will be €800,000 and this is why we are reaching out to the Irish people as we are determined to keep the service available and free of charge despite the funding crisis we’re battling.
