Be Independent Home Care was founded in 2010, in Dublin, by two Registered Nurses who are passionate believers in providing the highest standards of care in the home. Alice Lucey trained in the Mater Hospital in Dublin and Caitriona O’ Donovan trained in St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin. Both nurses spent 20 years working in the nursing and social care field before establishing Be Independent Home Care. In addition to their Nursing Qualifications Caitriona holds a post graduate qualification in Health and Safety and Alice a degree in Social Care.
Alice and Caitriona have overall responsibility for quality and operations in Be Independent Home Care and are assisted at management level by trusted Senior Registered General Nurses. As a senior management team we are passionate believers in delivering the highest standards of client centred care and we provide services that are managed and provided at all times in a way which meets the individual needs of our clients and ensures our clients are treated with absolute courtesy and respect.
At Be Independent Home Care we understand the vast majority of people want to stay in their own homes and remain independent and connected to their communities. We are passionate believers in community based primary care, a system where health professionals work together in an integrated fashion to ensure those that require care in the community can remain at home by accessing top quality health services. Each of our Nurse Managers works closely with multi-disciplinary teams in the community and are constantly liaising with and updating Public Health Nurses, home help teams, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech & language therapists and day care services.

Quality of care is at the core of all service provision. We are Approved HSE Homecare Service Providers and approved members of HCCI ( Home and Community Care Ireland).
