Domino’s Pizza has selected the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice as a charity partner in NI.
As the only children's hospice within Northern Ireland offering palliative and specialist care to life-limited children and young people, NI Children's Hospice recognised the need for an extension of its services and so in 2012, building work to a new children's hospice in Fermanagh was complete.
Hospice care is much more than pain and symptom control but also pays attention to the individual and helps them in a way appropriate to them. They provide over 90% of their care to patients, children and young people and their families in their own home through the work of their community teams.
At Hospice, they see the patient and the family as one unit of care. They see the patient first and their illness second. They offer care and support to the whole family, because caring is at the heart of everything they do.
