National Standards for the Provision of Home Care Support Services
To become a member of HCCI, all organisations have to meet the criteria as laid out in the HCCI National Standards for Provision of Home Care Support Services.
These standards are the only national standards for home care in Ireland. They incorporate guideline standards from the HSE as well as international best practice.
Members undergo an independent audit to ensure they meet the standards. This offers peace of mind to clients and their families about the quality of service provision.
