On Friday 24th September 6th class visited the newly refurbished Northwest Hospice.
It is a very bright, colourful and friendly place.
A nurse called Hazel met us and brought us into the ward. Here she talked to us about the patients who come to stay in the hospice. She explained that the hospice is not only for cancer patients but also for other patients with long term illnesses.
We also learned that they have a home care team who visit some patients at home who prefer to be at home with their families.
We presented the hospice with a cheque for €700 that we rasied in school from our hospice coffee morning.
