A recent report found that there is a huge shortage of healthcare assistants in Ireland and a quick search on recruitment sites shows hundreds of vacancies around the country. But why is this the case? Why are there so many vacancies for healthcare assistants? Well on the one hand Ireland’s population is aging – currently 12% of the population is over 65 and this is due to increase rapidly over the coming years. As the population ages, so too – sad to say – does the demand for nursing care of all types, including of course, healthcare assistants. Just as important as an aging population, however, is an increased realisation that providing home-based care for the elderly is a viable solution. On a very practical level home-based care can assist in relieving pressure on the overall healthcare system, freeing up beds in both hospitals and nursing homes for those who require critical care. More than that, however, many elderly people simply do not wish to leave the familiar surroundings of their home. Having lived in a house and neighbourhood for years, maybe decades, the elderly very often have well-established social and family networks in the area. They know not only where the shop is, but more importantly who it is works at the shop. They have friends and neighbours nearby who keep an eye one things for them and who they can drop into for a chat and cup of tea. Home care can consequently be particularly beneficial for those who do not have complex needs and wish to stay in familiar surroundings with friends and family nearby. As recent cases have also demonstrated, there is no guarantee that a nursing home will be able to support a couple staying together so home-based care may well be an option in these situations too.

The ISM team was delighted to attend this year's Full Of The Pipe Truck Show, held at Punchestown Racecourse on 10th & 11th June. Despite the inclement weather, over 200 people dropped by the ISM stand and met the team. We even managed to make it to the main stage to present a €500 ISM Gift Voucher to the winner of the raffle. A great event for all involved and we are already brainstorming ideas for next year!
