We are owned and managed by a group of fully trained, board registered, professional and highly experienced Irish Nurses, all of whom firmly believe that those who are elderly or ill are entitled to remain at home and so maintain their independence.

Personalised Home Help Services

We spend time getting to know each client so that we can select the perfect team member to deliver a customised home help service. This one-on-one approach to homecare means that you will receive individualised support that is fully-tailored to your needs.

Our valued team of home assistance carers provide the highest standards of support and are passionate about delivering on our mission of excellence in care care and home help. Our unwavering commitment to the highest standards of care means that all members of our staff are highly qualified and experienced carers who enrich the lives of our clients through the delivery of unsurpassable home care in Dublin. We operate by selecting only the finest, most qualified and experienced homecare assistants who provide a range of support services to ensure that our clients can continue living in their homes.

Client Focused Homecare in Dublin

When we meet our clients and their families, we assess the level of care that our client may require. In order for us to determine this, a dedicated Nurse Manager performs an in-depth review and consultation with every client before commencing home care. We account not just for the level of care that’s required, but also the relationship between our homecare assistant and our new client.

The Client-Carer Homecare Relationship

This is the most important relationship that will be established and is central to the success of any form of home care. We look at factors such as 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 care begins, our staff member is supervised by our Care Managers, who set up routine quality visits and phone calls to our clients’ homes to ensure that they are happy with the carer’s work. Our primary focus is not on the completion of tasks, but on the formation and growth of relationships with clients. When our clients are happy, we know that we’ve delivered first-class care.

As part of our strict Quality of Service Programme (QSP), we ask our clients for their valuable feedback via questionnaires on a continuous basis. We use this information to allow us to identify areas where improvements can be made to our services or to allow those carers who contribute to the achievement of excellence to be suitably identified and praised.

May ( Client Blackrock)

Be Independent have provided excellent care to me. They are kind, helpful, skilled and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this top class service.

Kay ( Client Dun Laoghaire)

Be Independent have been exceptional during Corona Virus, updating us and ensuring care continues with our regular care team. We are so grateful for helping us get through these tough times.

Laurence ( Client Glasnevin)

I have no hesitation in recommending Be Independent as the best home care company. My carer is the most professional carer one could wish for.

Siobhan ( daughter of Client Sandycove)

Our Carers from Be Independent Home Care are more like extended family, we would be lost without them.

Colm ( son of Client Blackrock)

We switched care-providers for our 91 year old mum to Be Independent, and could not have been happier with the result. The service has been highly professional, and the carers are excellent.

My carers are a joy to have in the house. They are always cheerful and make my day by making me laugh !

Ena (Wife of Client Dalkey)

Having decided to take that step & look for the right company to provide Carers/Companions for my Husband – I accepted ‘word of mouth’ that Be Independent would be the Company to approach. The Care Manager came to access the family situation (very diplomatically & understanding Professional). My biggest worry was engaging the ‘Right Companions’ for my husband & Be Independent absolutely got this right. Both ladies are very respectful, courteous and engage with him on topics that interest and enthuse him. So ‘A Big Thumbs Up’ to Be Independent Home Care.

Niamh (Daughter of Client Booterstown)

The carers providing the care were so loving and caring to Mum. They went over and above their duties to ensure Mum was comfortable and always looking well. The respect and love shown to her was exceptional. I’ll never forget it. Thank you everyone

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. From my first contact with the manager for my mother’s area, we were re-assured by the way they engaged with my mother with kindness and respect. The carer’s were punctual, hard-working, kind and patient. I cannot recommend Be Independent highly enough
