Individualised care, showing respect, compassion and dignity.
South Tipperary Hospice Movement is a community specialist palliative care service, providing support for people in South Tipperary/West Waterford with an advanced incurable disease. We support patients and their families in their own home as far as possible. We aim to deliver the highest level of individualised care showing respect, compassion and dignity to all persons in our care.
The aim of the specialist palliative homecare nursing service is to focus on the quality of life which includes good symptom control, a holistic approach that takes into account the person's life experience and current situation, care that encompasses both the dying person and those who matter to that person, and an emphasis on open and sensitive communication, which extends to patients, carers and professionals. We endeavour to provide a seamless system of care for patients and relatives from time of diagnosis to death or discharge from the service.
