Home Help Care
Home help care services are personal care and companionship services that help our valued clients manage their daily lives so they can be independent, safe, and comfortable at home.
Personal care needs and assisted living support tasks include dressing, bathing, toileting, mobility (walking or moving with assistive devices), meal preparation, and light housework. We work with our clients and their families, the HSE, GPs, public health nurses and social workers to create personalised home help care packages for occasional or live-in basis, to reduce the risk of adverse accidents, falls, and avoidable hospitalisation.
This type of care is often sought out to enable safe, independent living at home, or to provide companionship, assistance, and compassionate care for a loved one living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Independence, safety, and reassurance
Who can benefit from person-centred home help services?
- Family carers who are ready for professional help
Many of our clients who take advantage of our home help services are looking for assistance in caring for an aging parent or relative. Balancing work, children, and home life can be considerably harder when also trying to help a parent or other family member stay safe and independent. BAYADA can help fill in the gaps so you can feel confident your loved one is in safe, dependable hands when you’re not there.
- Families managing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
Our home help care is often chosen by families as an alternative to nursing home care. Each person’s experience with their dementia and Alzheimer’s is unique to them, and the symptoms and behaviours that can occur during middle to later stage illness can be very challenging and confusing for both the person living with the illness and their family. Being able to stay at home, in their familiar, safe environment can be extremely beneficial when living with dementia. The BAYADA care team are fully trained and experienced to support and strategise for coping. BAYADA is also pioneering a dementia and Alzheimer’s care training programme for caregivers to provide the best support possible for clients and their families.
Nothing is more important than your safety and well-being. That’s why we are committed to providing care with compassion, excellence, and reliability – it’s The BAYADA Way.
“I really enjoy the one-on-one aspect of home care. It’s great to connect with my clients, and really get to know them on a personal level. I know that I can make a difference.”
“It’s such a relief to have the aides from BAYADA. They give me a break so that I can get out and have some time for myself. I have full confidence in them— they really go above and beyond and allow me to keep my wife at home.”
“I look forward to Anna being here. She is very caring and professional. She knows what I need before I even say anything.”
“My mother’s health care assistant comes to see her every morning, seven days a week. The aide makes sure she is showered and impeccably dressed; she puts makeup on her, styles her hair, and makes sure the room is spotless. My mom looks forward to seeing her aide every day, she really likes her, and she seems really happy.”
