Home Help

The Home Help Service supports the assessed needs of vulnerable people in the community who through illness or disability are in need of help with day to day tasks. The focus of the Home Help service is on essential personal care such as washing or taking a shower, assistance with moving from one position to another, oral hygiene, or help at mealtime and/or with essential domestic duties ( like lighting a fire or bringing in fuel if there is no alternative heating source, or basic essential cleaning of the person’s personal space).

The particular supports provided to each person will depend on the needs that are identified during the assessment which is undertaken by a HSE health professional generally a public health nurse.

You can access this service through your Public Health Nurse or your local Health Centre
