LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice - Respite care

December 2013

Respite care - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsRespite care is the very heart of what we do here at LauraLynn. It is not a luxury, but a necessity for both the caregivers and the sick child.

Caring for a seriously ill child puts immense physical and emotional strain on the whole family. Through our respite care, families have the opportunity to take a break, while we care for their sick child. Our multi-disciplinary team provides children with full medical support, as well as a variety of therapies to enhance their care.

We are able to offer families choices, providing on-going support for as long as they choose.

Providing a nights respite to a child is an invaluable gift to the child and their whole family and Rosie & Jim have donated to support 5 overnight stays for a child.
