How does domiciliary care work?
Domiciliary care, known otherwise as home care, is where your loved one receives care through a professional Carer visiting their home.
This way, your loved ones way of life doesn’t change significantly; they can continue to live their life independently, without having the needs to rely on family for support. The visits, intermittent throughout the day from a healthcare professional take care of it.
If the level of care is low, then a daily stop at their home may be sufficient. However, if they more regular need assistance or medical requirements (such as to administer medicine, change dressings and so on), it’s likely that a district nurse or caring assistant may need to visit more regularly. These Carers are also there to help with the daily routine care, such as hygiene, dressing and meal times.
