Regulation of Homecare: A Position Paper

Status: Published on

HIQA has published a position paper, a Regulation of Homecare: Research Report, and an abridged version of that report which outline our analysis of the current landscape of homecare in Ireland and highlight key areas that require further consideration.

In this position paper, HIQA identifies that homecare should be person-centred, focused on quality, integrated, needs led, and inclusive of complex care where age or disability status is not a barrier or gatekeeper to access homecare services. The fundamental principles of a human rights-based approach should underpin the legislation, standards and regulation of this sector. HIQA firmly believes that there is only one opportunity to get homecare legislation right and is therefore advocating for an inclusive homecare scheme that protects all people who are receiving care in their own home.
