Working in the healthcare sector in Ireland is rewarding, just ask anyone who does it. It’s a vocational career and as many of our homecare assistants and other employees will tell you, they get as more out of it than they put in.
Our homecare assistants mainly assist our clients with their daily living activities. This can include duties like personal care, medication prompting and Social Support. We want our clients to live as independently as possible in the comfort of their own homes and our care workers are the backbone of this. So, we want to ensure that they’re happy.
