Call for more home-help hours

The reduction of home help hours to rural areas of Leitrim is depriving people of spending more time in their family homes and forcing them into hospitals and long term care homes.

That’s according to Fianna Fáil councillor and local election candidate Mary Bohan, who has called on the HSE to increase the provision of home help hours in the north Leitrim area.

Speaking to Ocean FM, Councillor Bohan says there are many benefits to an efficient home help system.
