The Hospice is run by a nurse manager and a very dedicated team of professionals. clinical issues are the responsibility of the regional consultant in palliative medicine and a number of doctors who specialise in this area.
There are now five homecare sisters providing a professional and dedicated service to people with life limiting conditions, in their own homes, throughout the county.
The Hospice movement works in partnership with the HSE. Donegal Hospice provides 20% of the running costs of the Hospice in Knocknamona and supports the homecare while also bearing the cost of all specialist equipment the sisters require.
