The new state-of-the-art hospice, which is expected to open in late 2015, has been designed to meet the changing and growing needs for end of life care in Northern Ireland, due to our ageing population. The building will be the first purpose built dementia friendly hospice in Northern Ireland, addressing the important challenge of providing care for people with complex care needs. A significant portion of the building project is set to take place over the summer months, paving the way for the external walls to be re-erected in early Autumn. NI Hospice still needs to raise £2.6 million to complete the rebuild of the adult hospice at Somerton Road and is calling on the public’s support for their Buy a Brick fundraising campaign. Donors can buy a brick to help rebuild the hospice for £30.
