Domiciliary care is one of the most flexible home care services available. For those not in need of a full time care home, or if the council won’t fund a care home, domiciliary care may be the best choice. The positive, therapeutic values of a personal home shouldn’t be overlooked – it’s comfortable, convenient and full of memories. As we age, being able to live at home is better for one’s sense of well-being, especially during illness.
What Does Domiciliary Care Provide?
Domiciliary home care is very broad and completely based on personal need. In general, and where needed, domiciliary home care includes:
- Chores including shopping, cleaning, and cooking meals
- Personal care including bathing, showering, shaving, dressing, and taking medications on time
- Companionship for social events, medical appointments, and general entertainment including playing board games and engaging in conversation

- You suffer from complex medical problems but would like to maintain your independence
