Extra Care is a home care provider working in partnership with the Health Service Executive in the Republic of Ireland and the Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland to provide a range of home care and training services.
Using trained, paid staff, we provide assistance, support and encouragement to service users with all personal care tasks and practical support tasks and we also provide "time off" for family carers. Our services are provided 24 hours per day, every day of the year and can be either long or short term. Services are available either during the day or overnight for those who live alone, those who require respite care at home or those who need support with caring.
All of our services can be tailored to meet your needs or the needs of your family members. Our services include the following:-
- Practical Support Services
