About the Caru Programme

Caru is an initiative of Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) in partnership with All Ireland Institute of Hospice & Palliative Care (AIIHPC) and the Health Services Executive (HSE). Caru is a continuous learning programme that will support and empower nursing home owners and staff in the delivery of palliative, end-of-life, and bereavement care to residents. This in turn will support enhanced quality of life and a good death, while easing the bereavement process for families and staff. 

Caru is a free programme available to all public, private and voluntary Nursing Homes. It is delivered through a series of networking events, quality improvement workshops, webinars, and Project ECHO networks.
