We do have limited access to an overnight room for family members; in general this is only offered to those families whose loved ones are in the last days of their life. We can, on occasion, set up make-shift beds or recliner chairs in patient rooms, if required. Longer term accommodation cannot be provided.
Patients are required to bring their own pyjamas, nightdresses, bed jackets, dressing gowns, slippers and toiletries. We provide and launder all bed linen and towels. Arrangements should be made to launder patients’ personal clothing at home. Locker/wardrobe facilities are available for personal day clothing, if required.
Phone calls can be put through to the main hospice reception desk Harold’s Cross: (01) 406 8700 Blackrock: (01) 206 4000 The team there are happy to answer all visitor enquiries and will re-direct your enquiry, if necessary. The reception is open 7 days a week from 8.00am – 10.00pm.
Yes, there is. Our restaurant provides snacks and full meal service. It is open Monday-Saturday from 9am until 5pm (closing between 2-3pm) and on Sunday and bank holidays from 9am until 4:30pm. Family and friends can accompany the patient to the restaurant where they can relax and enjoy each other’s company. The ward manager must be informed before a patient leaves the ward. The staff will always help families to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and wedding anniversaries. There are vending machines in the restaurant should you require food or drink outside of the restaurant’s opening hours.
