Family Carers Ireland (FCI) has been embedded in the homes of communities all over Ireland for more than 30 years, providing quality respite and home care.
As a not-for-profit organisation, any profits earned from the delivery of home care goes directly back into supporting family carers through the provision of specialised training programmes, respite breaks, equipment supply, emergency respite/respite provision, advocacy, peer support groups, emergency care planning and many other worthwhile initiatives. At FCI, we build our care plans around your family’s needs – not profits.
We know care better than anyone, as we have supported family carers for many years, thus understand that every carer situation and requirement is different. Our focus has always been on providing a personalised, tailored and quality home care service that responds to your changing needs with comprehensive, premium quality supports. All delivered by professional, friendly and empathetic Home Care Workers.
We are a HSE approved home care provider and pride ourselves in the knowledge that we understand your needs and are truly committed to ensuring you are safe, comfortable and cared for to the highest of standards.

We pride ourselves on providing top quality care through:

- We employ qualified Home Care Workers who, at a minimum, have paid home care industry experience of more than one year and are working towards achieving a major award in Healthcare;
