11,300 People Had Homecare Service Suspended Due to Covid-19 Crisis

11,300 vulnerable people had their homecare service suspended because of the Covid-19 crisis.

It followed a HSE review, which saw some carers redeployed to nursing homes.

So far, 6,200 clients have had their service restored, but 5,100 have not.


Catherine Cox, from Ennis-based Family Carers Ireland, says many older people are anxious about the situation.
