What is Domiciliary care?
Domiciliary care can be defined as care that is delivered in the comfort of your own home by a trained caregiver. This type of care is also known as home care.
The concept of domiciliary care is to ensure that the individual is as comfortable as possible and assist with any help you need while you can continue living and enjoying your life.
Receiving care in the comfort of your own home may be a new idea for some people, but often one that is preferred.
Carers can come and visit you up to four times a day for 30 minute to 1-hour calls; this is called hourly home care.
On the other hand, they can spend the whole day as companionship, doing the things you used to enjoy doing.
As well as having calls in the day or all day, there is the option of having live-in care. This option ensures family members have peace of mind that someone is with your loved one at all times.
These carers offer companionship, support with daily tasks, meal preparations and can assist with medications.
How can Domiciliary care support you with your care needs?
Domiciliary care is a great choice as it can vary with how dependent the individual is with their needs.
From care for bed-bound individuals to assistance with making meals, domiciliary care will provide the support you need while giving the independence to stay at your home for as long as possible.
As a family member, it may be difficult to fully support your loved one during a challenging time.
This is where the help of trained and dedicated carers can support your loved one, whether they need companionship and little support, to requiring full support.
Domiciliary care is a popular first choice, ensuring that your loved one can receive the care they require from the comfort of their own home, and still enjoy the things they love about life.
