Call for Minister Reilly to reverse cuts to Home Care services
Older & Bolder is calling on Minister James Reilly TD to reverse the cuts to Home Care Services announced yesterday by the HSE.
She continued “This is precisely the approach that has now been adopted by the HSE under Minister Reilly’s political leadership. Of the cuts announced yesterday, 18% are applied to the most under-resourced and thinly stretched element of HSE services; that is home and community care services which are already failing to meet the needs of children with life- limiting illnesses, people with disabilities and older people. How can Minister Reilly stand by as the Director of Integrated Services in HSE, Ms. Laverne McGuinness tell us on national radio that ‘those most in need will have continuity of Home Care packages’ and, in the same breath, tells us that families may only need those services for a limited number of weeks ? This will exacerbate the fears of families caring for relatives at home who are suffering with illness, disability, frailty.”
