What is Domiciliary Care?

Domiciliary care is support for you to remain living in the comfort of your own home.

For many people, it’s a much better alternative to the prospect of going into a care home or at least, it can delay a move into sheltered housing or a care home. If your home still meets your needs and is suitable and safe for you to live in, you can continue to focus on enjoying life. Even if your home isn’t suitable and safe enough, it can be adapted for you.
Domiciliary, or Home Care, offers you stability so you can maintain contact with friends and family and the local community in general. You don’t have to worry about leaving your beloved pet.
Home care is an affordable alternative to the ever-increasing costs of residential care and your home remains your asset.

Home care services provide professional carers or personal assistants who visit you at home to help with a wide range of jobs, including:

  • getting out of bed in the morning
  • washing
  • dressing
  • maintaining personal appearance, such as brushing your hair
  • help and support with toileting and using continence aids
  • preparing meals and drinks
  • help with eating and drinking
  • picking up prescriptions
  • giving, or prompting to take, prescribed medication
  • health-related tasks, as agreed with medical practitioners or community nurses
  • shopping (either with you, or on your behalf)
  • helping with money, managing and paying bills
  • getting out of the house and meeting friends
  • companionship
  • getting settled for the evening and going to bed.
