Footsteps Care - Grants

foootsteps

We are pleased to remind you of the service that Footsteps Care continues to provide. We award grants to assist patients with the cost of convalescent care in nursing homes or with support to enable them to recuperate at home. We provide one off grants to patients in need of convalescent care, following surgical or medical treatment in hospital, when no public beds are available, and they would be unable to fund a private bed themselves.

The grants are available countrywide and will usually cover the cost of one week's nursing home care or equivalent cost to cover other convalescent support while recovering from a hospital stay. This could mean some support in the home if the patient would prefer to recuperate in their own home after their hospital stay. The aim of the grant is to provide assistance to enable the patient to return to independent living.

All applications are considered on a case-by-case basis and should, in the first instance, come from social workers, GPs or other healthcare professionals. Application forms are available on request. For further information or to make an application please contact Footsteps Care via email footsteps.careco@gmail.com or phone 086 6076481.
