Limerick TD and Local Minister, Patrick O’Donovan has welcomed the announcement that Milford Care Centre, Limerick is to receive €1,250,000 in once-off funding for palliative and end-of-life care in 2020.

The announcement which was made by the Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly TD and will see €10 million in funding for palliative and end-of-life care service across the country. This once-off funding can be used for improvements to premises, facilities and ICT systems, telehealth and telemedicine platforms, education and training programmes and to offset lost fundraised income as a direct result of restrictions to counter the spread of COVID-19.

“I welcome this very important funding announcement for Milford Care Centre, it will go some way in supplementing their revenue from lost fundraisers during COVID-19. It will assist the Centre to continue to provide its specialist palliative care and older persons services to the people of the Midwest. The Milford Care Centre is a beacon for palliative care in the regional and providing this support is necessary during these challenging times.”
