It has been reported in local media and on social media that bogus Hospice collectors have been operating in the Castlerea area.
The Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) wishes to alert people that we have a representative in the area who is conducting door to door fundraising on our behalf. Michael is a fully accredited member of our team and carries formal identification and authorisation which he provides to all people he canvasses. The local Gardaí are aware of his presence and were informed in advance of his commencing work in the area.
In Roscommon, the IHF funds a free Nurses for Night Care service, which allows patients with non-cancer related illnesses to die at home. We provide ongoing training for local nursing home staff on improving the quality of end-of-life care they provide. We also have supported Roscommon County Hospital through our Hospice Friendly Hospitals programme.
These are the services Michael is fundraising for and we are extremely grateful to all our donors in Roscommon for their generosity and ongoing support.
Grief doesn't have an end date. If you or someone you know is struggling at this time, we are here to help you.
