Home Instead Senior Care to put the kettle on for Waterford Hospice Movement

Sep 12, 2011
Home Instead Senior Care will put the kettle on and host a coffee morning to raise funds for the Waterford Hospice Movement on Thursday, September 15th.

All of the funds raised on the morning will go towards the provision of hospice care for patients in Waterford and the South East.  Waterford Hospice Movement provides palliative care services for patients with life threatening illnesses in Waterford city and county and South Kilkenny, covering a population of 120,000 people.

Home Instead Senior Care is delighted to host its fifth Hospice coffee morning.  Danette Connolly, Director of Services said “As a company that supplies caring professionals to the region, we are acutely aware of the absolute necessity for a dedicated hospice facility in Waterford.  The level of care provided to both the patient and the family is paramount.”  

Danette added “It costs Waterford Hospice approximately €588,000 annually to provide its services. Almost two thirds of this money has to be raised through donations, local fundraising such as these coffee mornings and funds raised by individuals.”

“If something as simple as putting the kettle on can raise money for such a worthy cause and help to guarantee a better quality of life to the patient and their support network of family and friends I’d encourage everyone to make a small effort on September 15th.”

The WHM Coffee Morning takes place at Unit 2, Cleaboy Business Park (in front of the Blueberry Café) from 10am to 11.30am.
