“Aine was a home bird so Children’s Hospice gave us 24-hour care at home. I wanted her to die at home in her own bed. Aine had a lovely death and we have lovely memories.” Maria

Maria is Mum to four daughters. Two of her daughters were diagnosed with a rare condition that affects the development of the brain and used Children’s Hospice services. Aine passed away in 2012 and Michelle continues to use Children’s Hospice services. In this video Maria reflects on how Children’s Hospice has supported her family, particularly in their wish for Aine to die at home
