CONTACT FORM

Engaging the Home Care Service

Initial contact is made through the office, normally by a family member or the client themselves; however we also liaise with Public Health Nurses and GP’s. Our friendly staff will take details and establish the care needs of the client, reasons for care and the days and times the service will be needed.

The Manager will then contact the family and identify a more in depth look at the clients care needs. The Manager will ask about care needs, the clients own personality, what they like to do, what their interests maybe, there general day to day routine, their exact care requirements.

If the client wishes to proceed with the service the manager arranges a face to face meeting with the client and family members in the clients own home. The Care workers who will be attending to the client will be introduced. At this set up stage the care plan will be finalised, all the duties and requirements of the Care workers will be clearly outlined, the clients emergency contact and reporting process will be identified.

Our fully trained, Garda vetted staff will begin the caring process. Support and contact with the client and their families will be maintained at all time from the office. The office will have daily communication with the care workers and will receive progress reports on the service provided.

EMMA KEARNS, Social Welfare 

The service provided by your company was excellent. The carer was thorough and reliable, and always put the patient first. Any problem that arose I was consulted and necessary action was taken and discussed. Hygiene was observed at all times to my complete satisfaction. Last but not least I would like to mention that the cost at which you provide the homecare is affordable and allows persons n my situation to avail of it

When my father suffered a stroke, Kerry Respite Care was one of the few helpful and considerate organisations that we encountered. Day in day out my father has someone looking after him. He is very happy with the level of service he receives, much of it above and beyond what we expected. It was a major concern of my Dads what would his life be like after he was discharged from hospital but his carers look after him extremely well. I cannot praise the service enough.
