Donegal CAREGiver honoured as she marks retirement

Aug 17, 2018
Local Letterkenny carer, Bernie Rowan, was honoured at Home Instead Senior Care’s new Letterkenny office on Wednesday August 1, as she marked her retirement.


Home Instead has not only got a new premises at Riverside House, but a new owner in Martin Murphy, who says he is “very much looking forward to providing high-quality home care services to senior citizens” in the county. “Both of my grandmothers received care from Home Instead in Wexford,” added Martin Murphy, the new owner of Home Instead Senior Care Donegal.

“I saw at first-hand the passion, dedication and pride that CAREGivers bring to the role and the difference they make to people’s lives – not just to the person who is receiving the care, but to the entire family,” Martin added. Home Instead aims to enhance the quality of life for both seniors and their families in every caregiving experience. It provides a wide range of services; from personal care services to hospice care support and many care needs in between, which are tailored to families’ needs and preferences.

The Home Instead team in Letterkenny will be hosting coffee mornings in various locations around the county in the coming weeks to thank their CAREGivers for the high standard of care they have provided in Donegal over the last decade. “We’ll be organising an official launch to celebrate our new office but today is about celebrating our CAREGivers and the connections they’ve made with the older citizens of Letterkenny and beyond,” said Martin.
