Residential foster care homes are a specific type of care environment, in which young people live together in a shared living space, under the care of a group of adults. The aim of residential foster care is to provide individuals with child-centred care, enabling them to grow, develop and empower themselves.

Here at Compass Child and Family Services, we are an Irish charity providing out of home care arrangements for young people in the care of the Irish state. We provide four residential care services, all of which are founded upon humanistic values and principles including human dignity, mutual respect, equality, trust and unconditional appreciation. 

In this post, our team will take you through what you need to know about our residential foster care homes. If you would like to contact us, then please call us today on +353 (0) 61 622040.

How Does the Process Work?

In case you’re not familiar with how residential care homes work, we’re going to give you a brief overview here. Essentially, our foster care homes involve a small group of trained and qualified adults caring for young people. Young people living with us can have different levels of needs, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Our team will ensure that all of the young person’s needs are fully met including warmth, health and nurturing. 

We will build a relationship with our young people, empowering them to better understand and handle adversities they face in their daily life. Our residential care is provided in a shared living space, and we aim to foster a supportive family environment. What’s more, we use individualised placement plans, individualised programmes, routines and activities to reach the best outcomes for the young people in our care. 

Where are Our Residential Care Homes located?

At Compass Child and Family Services, we provide services in Ballina, Co. Tipperary, Tipperary Town, and in Tralee. The residential foster care homes we provide come with communal and private areas, have plenty of space, and provide lots of opportunities for indoor and outdoor recreational activities. 

In our Tralee-based care home, a unique approach is taken in which adults live in for five and seven days at a time. This is designed to recreate a familial environment, encourage attachment and the formation of relationships.
