Home Instead Senior Care has 17 independently owned and operated franchise offices throughout the country, with further growth plans anticipated for 2012. Fuelling the demand in this job sector is the growing number of older adults who may be plagued with health problems and need assistance with activities of daily living. According to the Central Statistics Office, the over 75 population will more than triple in Ireland in the next fifteen years.
