The Society offers support to persons with haemophilia, von Willebrand’s disease, related bleeding disorders and to their families on any issue which relates to their haemophilia or their ability to deal with their medical condition. This support includes regular hospital and home visits.
Meeting members in their homes allows us to integrate our understanding of the issues which specifically affect members in that area and allow us to optimise our advocacy efforts on their behalf. The I.H.S. are aware that not everyone can attend our events due to numerous reasons. However, this does not mean you do not need support. The I.H.S. can arrange a home visit to you at your convenience.
Being in hospital can be a scary and lonely time. The I.H.S. office is located in Dublin City Centre so it is easy for staff to attend St. James’s Hospital and Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin. If you or your child is in hospital and you feel like you need support, a chat or maybe a newspaper don’t hesitate to contact the office. Remember, the staff are here for you! We can offer you assistance and practical support during your hospital stay.
Please contact Lyndsey in the office on 01 6579900 if you need some support.
