We are a community based service that can provide Specialist Palliative Care to adults and children living in Counties Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary. Our aim is to support people who choose to be cared for, and sometimes die, in their own home or in the local community hospital or nursing home.

We are a consultant led, multi-disciplinary team and work from bases located in Ennis, Limerick, Nenagh, Newcastle West and Thurles. Our service works in close collaboration with:

  • Your GP, Public Health Nurse and other community services
  • Your Hospital Consultant
  • Other agencies that may be providing care for you

The multi-disciplinary team offers support Monday – Friday 8:30am – 16:50pm;
a limited nurse specialist weekend service
and a 24hr Telephone Advice Service.
