A word from our Chief Executive

Dear Patients, Visitors, Friends and Colleagues

Welcome to Milford Care Centre, where our aim is to provide high quality, person centered care to patients, residents, clients and families.  This website provides a platform where you can learn about what we do and how we can deliver our commitments to you.

The Little Company of Mary established the nursing home in 1928 and then in 1977 they decided to dedicate nine of those beds as palliative care beds.  In 1998 Milford Care Centre became a Company Limited by Guarantee, with an appointment of a Board of Directors.

Our site holds a wealth of information about the range of Clinical Services we offer you, from our Education and Research Directory to Career Opportunities, our Volunteers and Fundraising.  As a Registered Charity we are very fortunate to have such fantastic support from a large number of volunteers and we are extremely grateful for the fundraising that you continue to support us with.

We believe we have an outstanding staff – healthcare professionals and support personnel – whose ultimate goal is to provide you with the best care possible in a respectful and compassionate manner.  Every patient and family’s needs are different.  Milford Care Centre staff are focused on making sure that you experience a positive care journey.

We, as a Specialist Palliative Care Provider and Nursing Home, feel a deep sense of pride and commitment to all those who place their trust in our care.  Our primary focus is to deliver exceptional care that exceeds national standards in quality, safety and patient satisfaction.

As a Voluntary organisation we work in partnership with the HSE.

Your Feedback is important:

Please don’t hesitate to let us know what we can do to make your visit to Milford Care Centre more comfortable.  As a fundamental component of our mission statement, we allow ourselves to be guided by the needs of those we serve.  As needs change, we will change.

Again, thank you for allowing us to serve you during what is most likely a very vulnerable time in your life.  I appreciate the significant trust you place in us!  Our service is designed to meet all of these needs in a systematic manner that is underpinned by international best practice.  We are looking forward to demonstrating that we have listened while sharing our expertise with you and your family.
