Purple House Cancer Support Centre has developed a Covid-19 support team to support cancer patients during Covid-19.
To ensure that patients and families are supported, the organisation has moved all services to non-contact.
These services include telephone counselling by a team of IACP accredited counsellors and psychotherapists and hospital transport for chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
The centre will also be providing food hampers for patients who are isolating.
The telephone support line 01 2866966 has been diverted remotely to ensure families living with cancer are supported.
Groups and classes will be held remotely, thanks to software like Zoom, whereby patients can participate from the comfort of their own homes. To avail of any of the Purple House services, call 01 2866966, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to Purplehouse.ie.
