"By 2021, the population in Ireland in the 65+ age group is projected to grow to 16% of the population (751,000 persons) and by 2041 to 1.4 million people, accounting for 22% of the population. This represents a forecasted 61% increase in the elderly population over the fifteen year period 2006-2021." *
As a care provider for the older person, RHS Home Care understands the importance of being in control of your own life. We strive to deliver our elderly home care service to support your personal choices.
Research indicates that most older people would prefer to live in their own homes and to have support services provided in a way that would allow them remain in their own homes and communities for as long as possible.
Studies also reveal that there are major health benefits for elderly people living in the surroundings of their home rather than moving to long term residential care. Home care and home help is a positive alternative to nursing homes. In many cases, all it takes to achieve independence is a little home help and support around the house.
Our focus is on helping our clients to lead a fulfilled, safe and independent life, in their own homes.
