St. Gabriel's Respite House Fund

Please watch the above videos featuring Maia and her family who, among many other families, will benefit from having respite available to them in the future.

St. Gabriel’s Children’s Respite house is about time.

It’s about the very special time that children with the most complex disabilities, some with life limiting conditions will get to spend in our new respite centre situated in Mungret, on the outskirts of Limerick City. Here they will be cared for by experienced nursing and health-care staff.

It’s about time these children had their own special place, their club, their space, their home away from home. A happy place, where they can have fun away from their parents and enjoy being with other children.

It’s about time that parents had somewhere to turn to, especially in times of necessity, if a parent is sick or hospitalised, attending a family occasion or just when they need to spend time with other children in the family.

This beautifully designed six bedroom house will provide a place for families to access short term, emergency or overnight respite breaks. Parents will feel secure in the knowledge that their child will be loved and cared for in this home away from home.

St. Gabriel’s Children’s Respite House will make time for all of this. Time for children, time for their parents and families.

Time for care. Time for love. Time to recharge. Time to feel secure. Time to be happy.

We invite you to make this time happen by joining us in our fundraising efforts for St. Gabriel’s Children’s Respite House.
