Since our formation in 2002, Kerry Respite Care has been providing subsidised quality care in the home to the elderly and people with disabilities and illness in Kerry. Most people both single and couples prefer to maintain their independence, home comforts, social networks and dignity by remaining in their own homes for as long as possible. It can be a very difficult and emotive decision to acknowledge the need for support to enable continued independence and quality of life. Getting some care at home can be an important first step to continue living at home. Some people who avail of our services live alone independently and need additional care to the care they receive from the HSE. Others might be family carers of an elderly relative or person with a disability or illness who need a few hours each day or an afternoon free to themselves. Home care from Kerry Respite Care is from professional carers who are dedicated to support and care with dignity and respect.
INDIVIDUALLY CRAFTED SERVICES & SUPPORT
Home Care for You
Our home care services allow individuals to live in the environment they know best around the people they love most. Kerry Respite Care is a registered charity – Charity Reg. No 15290. We gratefully receive donations from the public to help support the work we do. We are also partially funded by Pobal, a government initiative to support communities. This places us in a unique position where we can offer subsidised fees to people needing care.
All our clients are treated as individuals with their own personalities, interests and care requirements. That’s why the home care we deliver is person centred and tailored to meet the exact needs of you or your loved one. We’re dedicated to working with our customers, their families, GPs, hospitals and other healthcare organisations to provide the best package of care in the home.
Kerry Respite Care’s team of friendly and compassionate carers are non medical. The care they provide ranges from providing company and stimulation to more dependent personal care needs of people affected by Dementia, Parkinson’s, Cancer and much more. The benefits of our service can be measured through conversations with clients and family members, improvement in health and well being.
