NORTHERN IRELAND HOSPICE INVITES PUBLIC TO CAFÉ CONVERSATIONS DURING PALLIATIVE CARE WEEK

Cafe Hospice

NORTHERN Ireland Hospice will open the doors of its new Old School House Café to the public for special evening conversation sessions during the forthcoming Palliative Care Week.

The café, situated on the grounds of the new £13m adult hospice facility on Belfast’s Somerton Road, will host Café Conversations from September 4-7, allowing members of the public to meet with the organisation’s staff and discuss many areas of practice at NI Hospice and NI Children’s Hospice.

Each evening, from 4pm-8pm, skilled staff will be available for conversations about all hospice services, from nursing in the community to social work, day hospice, education, retail, fundraising and volunteering.

The All-Ireland Palliative Care Week aims to raise awareness of the difference palliative care can make to patients, carers and families.

Northern Ireland Hospice Chief Executive Heather Weir said: “During All-Ireland Palliative Care Week, Northern Ireland Hospice will invite the public to learn more about what we do at hospice. People can come to us to discuss something specific, or even just pop in for complimentary refreshments.

“We will be listening to people and informing them about the many different skills and practices at hospice and in the community. Northern Ireland Hospice means a lot to so many people here but we are always reaching out to others to ensure we continue to provide local people with the best palliative care when they need it most.

“Everyone is welcome whether you have a connection with hospice or simply want to know more about us.”
