Bluebird Care will address Ireland's National Healthcare Conference next week on "Homecare - The Challenges and Opportunities."
Operations Director Eddie O'Toole says, "The growing demand for homecare services coupled with an increasing demand for regulation from customers is pulling the homecare sector in a new direction. We are calling for regulation of this sector sooner rather than later and with a collaborative approach between all stakeholders we can achieve this."
Eddie O'Toole is Vice-Chairman of Home and Community Care Ireland (HCCI) and through this grouping works for a tighter framework from which all operators in the homecare sector must play.
HCCI is the trade association representing private home care providers in Ireland.
The National Healthcare Conference which takes place in the Convention Centre Dublin on 19-20 March will see a high profile list of professionals, academics and policy-makers discuss the future of Ireland's health system.
Speakers include Minister for Health, James Reilly TD; Secetary General of the Deparment of Health, Ambrose McLaughlin and Benedicts Clements, Division Chief IMF.
