Home Care Support Scheme

Home care packages, which include home care cash grants, are grants brought in by the Government in 2006 to help support older people to continue living in their own community.
Services provided include:
  • Public health nurses
  • Home care attendants
  • Home helps
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational therapists.
The decision to allocate a home care package is based on:
  • Assessment of needs of the individual
  • Identification of any needs not being met by mainstream community services
  • Appropriateness of care in the community in the individual case.
The scheme aims to be as flexible as possible and highly responsive to the real needs of the individual.  So, where a family or friends of an older person wish to provide care services, they will be encouraged to do so, with HSE support.
In order to apply for the scheme, contact your local Health Centre.
