Family Carers Ireland (FCI) has been embedded in homes all over Ireland for more than 30 years, providing quality respite, emergency respite and home care. We are a HSE approved home care provider and pride ourselves in the knowledge that we understand your needs and are truly committed to ensuring you are safe, comfortable and cared for to the highest of standards.
As a not-for-profit organisation, any profits earned from the delivery of home care goes directly back into supporting family carers through the provision of specialised training programmes, respite breaks, equipment supply, emergency respite/respite provision, advocacy, peer support groups, emergency care planning and many other worthwhile initiatives. At FCI, we build our care plans around your family’s needs – not profits.
We know care better than anyone, as we have supported family carers for over 30 years, thus understand that every carer situation and requirement is different. Our focus has always been on providing a personalised, tailored and quality home care service that responds to your changing needs with comprehensive, premium quality supports. All delivered by professional, friendly and empathetic Home Care Workers.
At the heart of our home care service is ensuring that it matches your particular needs.
Our care plans can include any combination of a general call-in service, light housekeeping, social activities, personal care and more specialised support, e.g. dementia or palliative care.
Rates from €23* per hour
Tax relief of up to 40% is available which can substantially reduce this cost (down to €13.80/hr at the top rate). If the cost is being paid for by more than one person, this tax relief can be shared pro rata to their contributions. Learn more about tax relief by clicking here.
*All services are subject to the outcome of our in-home risk assessment.
