Milford Virtual 10k Walk/Run

PUNCH staff were delighted to take a step for Milford Care Centre and participate in their Virtual 10k Walk/Run, which took place over the last weekend in January.

Former PUNCH Director, Joe Murphy is the chairperson of Milford Care Centre and hence we are particularly keen to support its activities as much as possible. The In-patient Unit is located on the Milford Care Centre Campus in Limerick and provides specialist palliative care services to patients with life limiting conditions, while also supporting their families, from locations across the Mid-West Region. In addition, Milford operates a comprehensive range of specialist palliative community care services for patients in their own homes and in residential settings such as nursing homes, community hospitals, etc. Over 1,700 patients were treated by Milford Care Centre in 2019. Milford also offers a long-established Bereavement Support Service for families and its staff who work in conjunction with other health care professionals in the community. These services are available at no direct cost to patients or their families.

It is a fantastic, helpful and caring organisation and PUNCH were very happy to match the proceeds raised by our staff which led to a total sum of €1,260.
