Your affordable home care service
Kerry Respite Care is a social enterprise and registered charity CHY 15920. Since our formation in 2002, we have developed an excellent reputation supporting older people and people with disabilities or long-term illnesses to continue living in their own homes.
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.
At Kerry Respite Care we are dedicated to helping people remain living at home and to supporting those caring for a friend or relative. Some people who avail of our services live alone independently and need additional care to the care they receive from the HSE. Others are family carers of a relative or friend who need additional support perhaps to continue working or to have a much deserved break. Kerry Respite Care provide care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including nights and public holidays. Tax relief is available on home care fees.
Our team of dedicated, friendly and compassionate Health Care Workers are the heart of our service. The care provided ranges from company and stimulation to the more dependent personal care needs of people affected by Dementia, Stroke, Cancer and much more. All of our Health Care Workers are qualified, experienced, insured, Garda vetted and receive ongoing training and support. We are a non-medical service.
