Home Care and Community Care Ireland (HCCI) was formed in 2012 to represent private
home care providers in Ireland. HCCI unites members who directly care for thousands
of older and vulnerable people in their homes. Our members directly employ carers
to provide a quality service to clients.
Members represented by the HCCI provide services in the home that are wholly and
exclusively in furtherance of the clients they serve. In the vast majority of cases
our members deal with people who, if they were not receiving home care, the only
alternative would be long stay residential care in a public/private nursing home.
These clients are older persons, persons with disabilities, chronic health conditions
and any person whose quality of life can be improved by having a trained and supervised
care worker in their home. This includes help with everyday tasks like meal preparation,
bathing, dressing, and help with mobility, medication reminders, light household keeping,
laundry and transport. Our members also provide clients with personal care and assistance
with activities of daily living to maintain independent living within the home.
HCCI members meet on a regular basis to discuss challenges and issues in order to
further the aims of the association and its members.
