“I have had a lived experience of a Northern Irish care home doing really, really well in the dying process.”

Eina McHugh

A story from Slieve na Mon Nursing Home in Northern Ireland has been featured by the BBC – telling a tale of a family being supported through their father’s death.

The item, from a care home whose manager recently completed the My Home Life Leadership Support programme, tells the story of the McHugh family.

We’re delighted to see such a wonderful story in the press about the brilliant end of life care provided by the nursing home – not only for Mr McHugh himself, but for his whole family. It’s a testament to them that the family felt so moved they wanted to share their story with the world.

You can hear the interview on BBC Radio Ulster.

And read ‘How can we wake our father in a nursing home?’ on the BBC News website.
