RUGBY LEGEND ROB KEARNEY CELEBRATES BOOMING HOME CARE ORGANISATION

Mar 26, 2014
Rugby legend and Six Nations Champion, Rob Kearney was on hand last night to celebrate the opening of the twentieth Home Instead Senior Care franchise office in Ireland. Home Instead Senior Care is the largest national and global home care provider and enables older people to maintain their independence and live at home for longer than otherwise possible. 
 
There were 100 people in attendance at the exclusive Trim Castle Hotel to celebrate the launch of the new home care franchise. The new office provides care in counties Meath and Louth which means older people in all 26 counties will be able to avail of the quality home care service provided by Home Instead Senior Care
 
The Home Instead franchise was set up in Ireland in 2005 by Mick Kearney and Ed Murphy. The duo have brought other successful franchises to Ireland such as SNAP Printing and more recently CeX, a second hand technology and entertainment retail chain. Kearney is also the Manager of the Irish rugby team. 
 
The new franchise office in Co. Meath and Louth is independently owned and operated by Charlotte Reilly, a previous SNAP Printing franchise owner and home care professional. In 2012 Charlotte had her initial insight into the world of home care when she took a key role in the rolling out of a new IT system for HSE funded Home Help organisations in North Dublin.  
 
"After my experience in the home care sector in Dublin, I immediately wanted to  offer a quality home care service to older people in my native Meath so they can live at home and maintain their independence in a familiar environment”.  
 
“Having someone like Rob Kearney on hand to celebrate the growth of Home Instead Senior Care has really helped us generate awareness of the business and service offering. Considering Rob’s recent 6 Nations win, there was no better person to celebrate the growth of this Irish company. I couldn’t ask for a better person to support the launch of the twentieth Home Instead franchise office”, continued Charlotte Reilly.
 
Speaking at last night’s event, rugby legend Rob Kearney said: “We all grow older and home care is something that will be relevant to us all one day. I wish the new office every success and who knows I may use their service one day, however long away that may be”.
 
Since setting up in Ireland in 2005, Home Instead Senior Care has provided care for almost 5,000 people and has employed over 2,000. With the new home care franchise in Meath, this growth is set to continue and will provide a further jobs boost to the local economy.
 
Home Instead provides support services such as - assistance with activities of daily living, personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands and shopping as well as specialised Alzheimer's care – which enable seniors to live safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible.
