More Home Help needed – Hopkins


Fine Gael Senator Maura Hopkins has called on her own Government to increase funding for Home Help supports across Roscommon and Galway. 

  Senator Hopkins stated: “While it is positive that just over 1,000 clients (1,096) in Roscommon are in receipt of home help support at present, far more resources are needed to support more people to continue living at home.

  “However, over the past number of months I have been contacted by quite a number of family members and individuals themselves who have been assessed and approved for home help support yet remain on a waiting list to receive their allocation.

  “It is very worrying that people who have specific needs in terms of personal care and domestic tasks  are not receiving the home help support for which they have been approved”.
