North Wexford Hospice Home Care is a voluntary charitable group which seeks to raise funds for home-based palliative care. It is part of the County Wexford Hospice Home Care Team Ltd, which was set up in 1990. It relies on the generous support of the public and all monies raised are used for the sole purpose of the expenses of the nurses and their home-care visits. The demand on the service has increased over the past 24 years and in 2012 the 5 nurses performed over 5000 home visits. Please support this worthy cause, and your local community.
