Maternity Care

We at Private HomeCare understand that coming home from hospital with a new baby can be an exciting and challenging time. As many of us are mothers ourselves we know how important it is to have the support when you need it.

Whether you need our services straight away or need extra assistance at any time our experienced team can talk you through a package most suited to your needs.

Nursing Care

We can provide you with a registered nurse or carer to support you and your baby following discharge from hospital. Some insurance companies will cover most of this cost. You are advised to contact your insurance company for details.

This may include:

  • Feeds
  • Washing, dressing and changing nappies

Practical Care

You can have some much needed rest by using our practical home care service. This allows you time to bond with your new baby.

This may include:

  • General care for you
  • Preparing and serving meals
  • Laundry-washing, hanging out clothes, ironing and putting clothes away
  • Tidy up the kitchen, doing the dishes, making the beds, hovering and dusting
  • Food shopping and putting shopping away
  • When visitors come to the house a carer can answer the door and make tea/coffee


If you need support with other children when you bring home your new baby we can help.

This support can include:

  • Preparing breakfast and lunch
  • Washing and ironing uniforms
  • Bringing and collecting children from playschool/Montessori/school
  • Tidying children's toys away
  • General care of the older child

Each of our carers working with children have done their Children’s First Course and having passed an intensive screening programme which includes an interview, references checked and are Garda Vetted.

I want to thank you and all the wonderful carers for your kindness, care and attention to my darling mother over the past 7 years. The service of your agency made it possible for mum to live at home, retaining her independence in spite of medical and physical disability. Over the years we got to know many marvelous dedicated women, whose praise, we as a family, cannot sing highly enough. Their warmth, patience, empathy and ability to meet the challenges of home care were exceptional and for us a very rewarding experience.
