About LauraLynn Ireland’s Children’s Hospice
LauraLynn is a hospice for children with life-limiting conditions and residential care for young adults with disabilities. We employ approximately 129 staff within our teaching, fundraising and care provision departments.
The history of our hospice has evolved over many years from its beginnings in 1925 as a convalescence home for children from the inner city, to the opening in 2011 of LauraLynn House, a dedicated 8 bed children’s palliative care unit. This award winning healthcare building and its everyday operations are funded by the generous support of our donors.
On our 3.6 acre site, in addition to LauraLynn House are Hazel House, Holly Oaks and Willow View, which were formerly known collectively as Children’s Sunshine Home. Within these residential houses we provide care for young people with intellectual disabilities and funding is provided by the HSE. In providing a safe and effective service for the children and young people within our care, we are guided by HIQA’s key principles of care.
Our Clinical Education and Research Department provides training programmes tailored to meet the key needs of the evolving disciplines required by health professionals working in the relatively new specialty of children’s palliative care.
We have a LauraLynn@HOME care programme operating in two HSE regions – Dublin North East & Dublin Mid-Leinster which comprises of nurses and health care assistants with children’s palliative care training. This programme enables children with life-limiting conditions and their family to access palliative care and support within their own home.
