The Organisation:

We are a section 39 non for profit home care organization providing home help & home care services with funding provided by the HSE, in the Finglas, Blanchardstown, Castleknock, Clonsilla, Mulhuddart, Huntstown, Ongar, Navan road Cabra, Phibsborough, Smithfield & Stoneybatter areas. We provide a range of services including personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation, shopping, housework and assistance with collecting prescriptions. We aim to provide high quality home care support for a variety of individuals, mainly older persons, living in their own homes to enable them to maintain their independence for as long as possible. most of our staff are local, highly trained and have been with the company a substantial length of time. We have a dedicated team of supervisors to assist in monitoring the staff and service users and ensure we maintain a high standard of care and a quality assurance office who monitors all elements of the company. Over the next 18 months to 2 years, the sector will be preparing for licensing and regulation & engagement with HIQA, setting the groundwork for how home care in Ireland will be delivered during the next decade and beyond. And so, it is an exciting time to become involved, as we prepare for a change in our funding model.
