Our Proud History

A few years back our company saw the need for local home care services in the West Kerry area. Today’s aging population requests in-home care services more than ever before.

What We Do

Local Homecare Services provides general supervision and assistance with personal care needs. We also handle routine daily activities including light housekeeping, meal preparation, errand running, mail sorting and various other tasks. In-home care can also be requested by new mothers and those with a short-term disability or illness to help until they can get on their feet. again.
Local Homecare Services has gone from strength to strength in recent times.
Is Local home care the right option for you? You may want to consider the following benefits:

Comfort

Whether you are feeling ill or well, most people prefer the comfort of being in their own home. Local Homecare Services allow you to continue living independently, in familiar surroundings.

Cost-Effectiveness

With Local Homecare Services, you’ll receive one-on-one care and attention from your caregiver that you can’t always get in a facility. That means greater value for every euro. Plus, your caregiver may perform tasks previously handled by other services, such as cooking meals, cleaning the house, doing laundry or helping you get out and about. Your personal caregiver can help you save money and time, too.

Convenience

Local Homecare Services makes it simple and easy to find a reputable in-home care staff serving your area. You’ll work out a schedule and a list of duties your caregiver will perform when you meet with our company. Local Homecare will choose the caregiver best suited to you to ensure the care you receive is personalised to meet your exact needs and schedule.

Companionship

Local Homecare Services can also provide companionship. We will match a caregiver to suit your personal care needs and interests/hobbies.

Security

Having a professional caregiver in your home can provide an additional level of security for your loved one. Each of our caregivers have years of caring experience, as well as the relevant qualifications and skills and are garda vetted.

Assurance

Local Homecare Services assures you and your family peace of mind. Many adult children of aging parents can’t regularly pop-in to check on their loved ones or tend to their needs. With a caregiver in the home, families are regularly updated as to the well-being of their parents. Having a personal, caring, professional caregiver in the home provides everyone peace of mind.
