Social Work with Older People

Clarecare provides a dedicated community based social work service for older people, age 65 and over, who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. The service facilitates older people to identify options and make decisions for themselves so they may improve the quality of their lives. This is done through home visits, phone calls, hospital and nursing home visits.

Clarecare social work department supports clients through the Conas Átá Tú phone service list. Clients receive a regular phone call from the service. This regular phone contact aims to reduce the risk of isolation for older people.
