Leading independent domiciliary care provider Connected Health has launched a new ‘concierge’ premier private homecare service in Dublin.

The award-winning homecare company has introduced the superior service in response to a growing demand for a full range of personalised assistance to aid independent living at home.

This means clients can avail of a full menu of care services — from simple companionship to chauffeur-driven shopping trips and personal assistance, as well as more traditional care activities like wake-up calls, tuck-in services, cooking and light housework.

The premium homecare offering also employs technology, with each client receiving a movement-monitoring wearable device that provides peace of mind for the user and their loved ones.

The PacSana ‘wear and forget’ activity bracelet provides quick insights on the wearer’s current status within the home, as well as any sudden changes in movement that indicate immediate support is required. It also monitors changes in movement patterns over time to provide evidence of preventative care that may be needed.

Rachel Brammer, Director of Stakeholder Engagement and Client Relationships at Connected Health, said:

“Connected Health is leading the way with this innovative premium offering which provides concierge-type homecare services and personal assistance.

“There is currently a rapidly-growing need for private home care in Ireland, with particularly high demand from older people seeking an extended menu of private homecare services. We are delighted to initially launch this premium service in South East Dublin, with plans to roll it out across the county and beyond in the coming months.

“Our premium concierge package includes technology-enabled care using the PacSana bracelet. This piece of tech is tailored exactly to the needs of older people — it’s unobtrusive, comfortable, has a long battery life [6 months], is fully waterproof so it can be worn at all times, has no flashing lights, includes built-in fall detection, and does not intrude on the user’s privacy as it only records movement inside the home.

“The use of technology to improve person-centred care is a core driver at Connected Health in delivering home care 2.0 across its domiciliary care services.”
