Staff shortages hinder community services for the elderly

The National Audit Office carried out a performance audit of the AACC, and its final report was presented to Parliament today. In its audit, carried out in 2018, the office focused on four key services – Social Work, Domiciliary Nursing and Caring, Meals on Wheels, and Home Help – out of the 18 provided by the AACC, but these four services alone took up the lion’s share of the budget. During 2018, the provision of these services entailed an expenditure of €10.56 million, out of a total budget of €15.33 million.
