ABOUT HOME INSTEAD SENIOR CARE DUBLIN (RATHFARNHAM)
Hugh McGauran and Ann Toland, Owners of Home Instead Senior Care
Husband and wife team, Hugh and Ann, opened a Home Instead Senior Care office in Nutgrove, Rathfarnham in April 2006 and over the last 7 years they have built up a very strong reputation for providing the highest standards of home care in the Dublin 6W, 12, 14 and 16 area.
Hugh and Ann are committed to recruiting and placing the very best CAREGivers and ensuring the match between the senior and the CAREGiver is right. At Home Instead Senior Care we understand that most people are apprehensive about taking a CAREGiver into their home. It is our job to reassure local seniors that we are not taking away their independence, we are helping them to maintain their independence and live at home for longer than otherwise possible by providing a range of home care services.
It is important that we get the right "fit" of CAREGiver, so if the client is looking for someone for companionship, meal preparation and transportation we will find a compatible CAREGiver that can provide the required range of home care services.
Prior to setting up Home Instead Senior Care, Ann worked in nursing and elder care and Hugh worked in business, together they have the expertise and passion to deliver the highest quality home care service to seniors in the local community. They also live in Churchtown with their four young children so local seniors will benefit from a combination of senior care expertise and real local knowledge.
