A guide to domiciliary care

What is domiciliary care?

Domiciliary care is a care service that is offered to those who wish to continue living in their own home but need assistance with a variety of daily tasks. These can include domestic tasks, personal care, looking after pets and any other actions that enable the client to maintain as much of their independence as possible and keep their quality of life high.

Domiciliary care can also acts as a precious source of companionship for the clients who live alone, we understand that it is not always possible for family and friends to visit everyday and this lends itself to feelings of loneliness. Having a carer come in every day, or just a few times a week will help the client feel more comfortable, safe, as well as not feeling as though they are being left behind. Due to this, domiciliary care can also help boost client mental wellbeing as they are receiving the companionship that they need. Our carers are trained not only to provide physical care but are also there to provide emotional support and reassurance to the client in times of stress.

The benefits of domiciliary care:

One of biggest advantages to domiciliary is that the level of support can be altered so that the clients independence level remains as high as possible. In addition to this, the client gets to stay in the environment they feel most familiar and at ease, their home. Moving into a residential home can be very stressful and in some cases causes more harm than good for the individual. Having a carer who comes in a for as little as 30 minutes a day could allow the client to avoid this unnecessary stress and is well worth considering.
