Domiciliary care is the range of services put in place to support an individual in their own home. Provided to those that require additional support with day to day household tasks, personal care or any other activity that allows them to maintain their quality of life and independent living.
We provide ongoing support that’s completely built around your needs and routines. It’s one of the many reasons why we’re the nation’s favourite for home care.
Many families are opting for domiciliary care – otherwise known as care at home – because it puts them back in control of the support they receive. With one-to-one personal attention, from 30 minutes a week and up to several visits a day or overnight support, our care plans are completely built around you. You can even opt for a live-in carer living with you at home to provide 24-hour care.
Call us today to find out more about our domiciliary care services. As the nation’s only home care provider that is industry-endorsed as a Centre of Excellence, we’ll carefully match you with someone who is skillfully trained, compassionate and who fits your personality and interests, closely supervised by our expert management team.
What is domiciliary care?
With domiciliary care, you or your loved one can continue to stay in the place you feel most comfortable – at home. You may be starting to find it difficult to complete different areas of your routine and want some support whilst staying in familiar surroundings.
Regular home visits from a fully trained care worker, from 30 minutes through to several hours a day, can be arranged to help you with a wide range of everyday tasks, including:
- Personal and continence care
- Managing medication
- Helping to mobilise in and around the home
- Household tasks and meal preparation
- Clinical care, including catheter and stoma management and PEG feeding
Like live-in care, domiciliary care offers a valuable source of companionship. Seeing a familiar face every day, or a couple of times a week, brings comfort, a feeling of safety and friendship – as with elderly care, this form of social care also benefits mental health, as a care worker will be able to provide the much needed companionship. Care assistants are not just trained in delivering the physical aspects of care, but also offering emotional support, encouragement and reassurance.
Who is domiciliary care for?
Domiciliary care is for anyone who wants to stay at home while receiving the treatment they need. This type of care can be beneficial to people of all ages. This treatment can include recuperation, convalescence, and rehabilitation, amongst other areas.
Our fully trained carers can provide medical support including catheterisation, convene, PEG feeding and suppositories, to name just a few. All our caring staff are managed by our team of clinical care nurses who will work with you to create a unique care plan – making your life easier as you receive care in your home.
We also work closely alongside district nurses and occupational therapists when required to ensure that we are able to deliver care that meets your specific needs – whether it be disability care, types of dementia care, nursing care or even companionship care.
