Statement on the opening of Seaview Respite House in Mountcharles, Co Donegal.

RehabCare is pleased to confirm that Seaview Respite House in Mountcharles, Co Donegal has now been registered by HIQA.

This means all outstanding legal processes regarding the transfer of services of Seaview Respite House from the HSE to RehabCare are complete.

RehabCare is delighted to announce that we are now scheduling clients for respite with immediate effect and will welcome our first clients tomorrow, Thursday, January 30th.

A spokesperson for RehabCare said: “We are very much looking forward to finally welcoming our first clients at this nurse-led service, which we know is vital to the community. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure families that continuity of care and the provision of a person-centred, quality service for the adults and children who will access this service is our number one priority. RehabCare has a long history of providing excellent, person centred care and currently provides a range of services to 3000 adults and children at 117 locations around the country. These includes vital respite and residential services for 186 children, many with high-support needs.  We are conscious that there was significant delay for families waiting for the transfer of this service so we are delighted that this wait is now over.”
