HSE/Private/Mixed Home Care Packages


What is the Home Care Package Scheme?

The Home Care Package (HCP) scheme is an administrative scheme, operated by the HSE. The scheme is aimed mainly at those requiring medium to high caring support to continue to live at home independently. The Home Care Package scheme is not established in law; as it is an administrative scheme, you neither have an automatic right to the scheme, nor to avail of services under the scheme.

There are no national guidelines on how to qualify for the scheme or how income or means are assessed. Some HSE Administrative Areas assess income on the same basis as medical cards. Check with your Local Health Office for more details on how the scheme operates in your area.

Each HSE Administrative Area has responsibility for the operation of its own scheme. This means that schemes vary in different parts of the country depending on the local population, your individual needs, the personnel available to deliver services and demand in your area.

Private Home Care Packages

If for any reason you are not deemed eligible by the HSE for a home care package, you can of course pay privately for personal care or home help/domestic assistance services. Our Client Care Managers will visit you and assess your needs, and care can commence as soon as possible. 


Mixed Home Care Packages

You may already be in receipt of a home care package from the HSE, but require additional supports which are not funded. Our Client Care Managers will let you know of the additional supports and times that we can offer, and of the costs involved.
