Leopardstown Park Hospital are working with the Irish Hospice Foundation CEOL (Compassionate End of Life) Programme. CEOL is a quality improvement programme that enables staff to deliver compassionate, person-centred end-of-life care to residents, their family members and staff. It is built around the needs of the individual, with the resident always at the heart of every decision. Good end-of-life care is about being supported to live well until you die.
