Sample Tips from our Guide section

Using care services

If you are new to using social care services, or are acting on behalf of a relative or a friend, get advice on where to begin. Find out about the standards for children’s care centres, residential services for people with disabilities, residential care settings for older people and how the inspection process works.

You can use inspection reports as your starting point to find out more about the social care service you are interested in. HIQA website has inspection reports for care services registered by the Authority, which you can download for free.

The inspection report will set out what the care service does well and what it needs to improve. It will also give you some general information about the care service which will help you get a feel for the place.

Entitlements
If you live in a residential care setting for children, older people or people with disabilities, you can expect to have a number of rights.

Your responsibilities
The reporting of concerns and providing feedback to the Social Services Inspectorate plays a very important role in social care services and provides important information about service users’ experiences.

Reporting a concern

Protected disclosure
Protected disclosure provides legal safeguards for staff who want to report serious concerns they have about standards of safety or quality in Irish health and social care services.
It aims to encourage individuals to have a say about the safety and welfare of service users and to foster a culture of openness and accountability throughout the health services.
