North Westmeath Hospice
Welcome to North Westmeath Hospice.
The North Westmeath Hospice is a voluntary organisation which was set up in 1994 to help provide specialist palliative care services for the people of Westmeath.
The North Westmeath Hospice is registered in Ireland as a limited company and has charitable status.
The assets of the Hospice are held in trust by the directors who are unpaid and they report to the Hospice Homecare Foundation Committee which is responsible for setting the policy of the Hospice and liaising with the HSE.
The fundraising is carried out mainly through the Mullingar branch and the Delvin branch of the Hospice together with many other individuals and support groups throughout the county.
What we do
Together, we raise life changing amounts to provide comfort, care and dignity to patients and families at a most vulnerable time.
The North Westmeath Hospice is a fundraising body for Specialist Hospice and Palliative Care providers in the North Westmeath area, including both in-patient and community services.
The North Westmeath Hospice exists to support and enable these frontline services to fundraise collectively at a local level.
Avail of the Hospice Services
The North Westmeath Hospice provides specialist palliative care services ensuring that people who are coping with a life threatening illness, death or bereavement can access appropriate homecare and support.
Palliative Care is an approach which improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems physical, psychosocial and spiritual.

They are looking forward to returning to the streets on Friday and Saturday the 10th and 11th of June and asking for people to come out and support them and this worthy cause. Chairperson of the fundraising Committee, Margaret Claffey, added “I would like to remind everyone that all monies raised at this event stays local to support our palliative Hospice Homecare Services”.
