The Living Section of the Summer Edition of the Parkinson Association of Ireland Magazine features A Guide To Your Entitlements in Home Care. The article was compiled by Alice Lucey, Registered General Nurse, BA (Hons) in Social Care and Director of Care at Be Independent Home Care Ltd. While Private Home Care is becoming an increasingly popular choice for those who wish to access care in their own home, few people realise it is actually an extremely cost effective form of care with a range of entitlements available. The article provides details on these entitlements whcih include Tax relief and Home Care Packages and Grants.
