Hospice Care
Hospice Care is provided to people and families in the last days of their lives. It is a sensitive and holistic service, delivered either in a hospice or at home
and designed to give comfort and dignity. For details of this service contact the Director of Public Health Nursing at (022) 58700.

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 by telephoning the home help service on (022) 58700.
