Cancer Care West helps cancer patients and families with residential and long term accommodation supports, free of charge.
Inis Aoibhinn is Cancer Care West’s residential facility which is located on the grounds of University Hospital Galway. Inis Aoibhinn provides residential care for people receiving radiotherapy treatment at UHG. At Inis Aoibhinn patients can stay with a family member or friend for the duration of their treatment where they have complete independence as well as the comfort of 24 hour nursing care.
Referrals to Inis Aoibhinn are made through the Radiotherapy department at University Hospital Galway. All residents must be able to walk independently from Inis Aoibhinn to the Radiotherapy Department for daily treatments.
We support families who have a loved one going through long term cancer treatment in hospital.
