Day Care Centres for Older Person
The main objectives of Day Centres are
- To provide a service such as a mid-day meal, a bath, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, chiropody, laundry and hair dressing.
- To promote social contact among the elderly and prevent loneliness.
- To relieve caring relatives, particularly those who have to go to work, of the responsibility of caring for elderly persons during the day.
- To provide social stimulation in a safe environment for elderly people with mild forms of dementia.
People attending a Day Centre are generally active but many require assistance in some activity of daily living, such as preparing food, bathing or washing clothes. The development of Day Centres/Day Care Centres in Cork and Kerry has included Centres managed exclusively by the SHB, managed in partnership with voluntary agencies and Centres exclusively managed by Voluntary Organisations. There is variation in the staffing of these Centres and in the
services they provide.

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 or with essential domestic duties such as 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 calling 021 492 3863 or 021 492 3891 or 021 492 3838
