Cuts to Tipperary Home Help hours highlighted.


Recent cuts to home help hours are causing huge hardship to older people in Tipperary and their families who depend  on it.

That's the message from Home Help shop steward for Tipperary town and area.

Geraldine McNamara says the hours have decreased from 12 to 9 thousand over the past three years which has resulted in a log-jam in this sector within  the HSE .

She's  urging people in the county to act now to save the Home Help service and says older people are  fearful of more cuts being made.
