Over 700 People In The Kildare Region Are Awating Home Care Packages.

: 07/20/2018 - 17:19

724 people in the Kildare region are awaiting home care packages.

These older people in Kildare, West Wicklow and South Dublin have already been assessed by the HSE, which has determined that they need addition supports.

The fact they haven't been accorded the supports means they cannot be discharged from hospital

Kildare North Fianna Fáil TD, Frank O'Rourke, says

“It makes little sense to delay giving home care supports to people that need them. It goes against the Government’s stated aim of ensuring people can continue living in their home if they so choose to do so. It is also leading to unnecessary overcrowding in our hospitals. There are many older people in hospitals that are ready to be discharged but are unable to return home as the necessary home care supports have not been put in place."
