Our homecare assistants provide home help, one-on-one assistance and home care services to assist our clients to live well in their own homes in Dublin.
Client Focused Homecare and Home Help in Dublin
When we meet our clients and their families, we assess the level of needs that our client may require. This will determine the level of home care that may be needed. In order for us to determine this, a dedicated Nurse Manager performs an in-depth review and consultation with every client before beginning homecare. We do not just take the level of home help needed into consideration, but also the relationship between our home health care assistant and our new client.
The Client / Carer Home Help Relationship
This is the most important home health care relationship that will be established and is central to the success of any form of home care and the provision of home care services. We look at things like skill sets, knowledge, abilities and individual personalities to ensure that we find the best fit for you. If required we can also set up an introductory meeting between our client and their potential carer before care commences to put our client at ease. Once home health care begins, the carer is supervised by our Care Managers who set up routine quality visits along with phone calls to our client’s homes to ensure that they are happy with the carer’s provision of care and home help.

When mum came out of hospital doctors suggested we look for a nursing home. Be Independent Homecare have enabled her to stay in her home. They're kind, genuinely concerned for her welfare and flexible with the level of daily support she gets. Would I recommend them? Absolutely with no hesitation
Geraldine, Niece of a much loved client who passed away
I’m not sure how to express our gratitude to you for the support you gave to us, and for the gentleness, kindness, dignity, and respect with which you cared for Carmel. Honestly, you couldn’t have cared for her better if she was your own loved one and we literally wouldn’t have made it through the last two and a half years without you
Fiona Nolan, Ballsbridge ( Clients daughter ).
My family engaged Be Independent Homecare, when my mother needed extra care.

The carer’s were punctual, hard-working, kind and patient. I cannot recommend Be Independent highly enough
