HSE provides “once off” meals grant to Carrick-on-Suir Day Care 

The HSE has allocated a “once-off  grant of €10,000 to Carrick Day Care Centre to support it as it “transitions” to finding an alternative way of providing main meals to its clients in the wake of the closure of St Brigid's Hospital 

Minister Mary Butler announced the funding for the Day Care Centre located next to St Brigid's Hospital. The hospital used to supply meals for the centre’s clients   

Barbara Murphy, Head of Service for Older People at  HSE South East Community Healthcare, informed the Minister the HSE held discussions with the Day Care Centre with various options explored.  

“To support the  Centre in a transition to an alternative means of providing a main meal and make the necessary adjustments to its service provision, the HSE has allocated a once-off grant of €10,000 to the Day Care Centre, which it has accepted,” Ms Murphy said.
