Irish people want to remain in their own homes for as long as possible, even if they require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed or preparing meals. Having a small team of CAREGivers provide such support maintains a persons’ independence in their own home and is a realistic desired alternative to nursing home care.

Our Live-in CAREGiver moves in with your loved one, providing a reassuring presence, support, and continuity of care.

Your Live-In CAREGiver delivers support based on your agreed care plan. Your care plan can include support with daily activities such as preparing meals or assisting with personal care, housekeeping, shopping trips, supported exercise and more.

Your local Home Instead office team provide care management and back up care, ensuring your care plan is relevant and enriching. Our aim is to provide the highest quality care service available.
