Nutricia Homeward Service

The Nutricia Homeward service supports hundreds of patients across Ireland who receive tube feeding at home or in residential care.


We understand the difficulties which patients and their carers face, and we are dedicated to providing the best support we can to help patients manage their nutritional treatment.

Nutricia Homeward Nursing Team

Our nationwide team of Nutricia Homeward nurses provide support and pump training for enterally fed patients and their families. We also help healthcare professionals to provide the best possible nutritional care for their patients in many different settings. This includes training on the use of pump for tube feeding, provided in hospital or at home and post training follow-up to ensure tube feeding is running smoothly.
