« BackKerry TD says 9,000 hour home help gap in Kerry

John Brassil from Fianna FáilThere is nearly a 9,000 hour gap in terms of home help hours in the county as of May 2016.

That’s according to Fianna Fáil TD for Kerry, John Brassil following a recent Parliamentary reply.

Deputy Brassil says Kerry should get its fair share of the 270,000 additional home help hours that were announced recently.

The Kerry TD has called on Minister for Health Simon Harris to ensure that the HSE in Kerry gets the funding needed to ensure older people, and people with disabilities, have access to home help hours.

He added that the 20% gap in service cannot continue and that of all the Local health offices in Munster, Kerry is suffering the most in terms of Home Help gaps.
