How does domiciliary care Work?
Our carers provide support so you can live happily and safely at home. We’ll work with you to tailor a care plan that suits your needs. This could include support with washing and dressing, personal hygiene, going to the toilet, meal preparation, moving around safely, medication reminders and more.
What is domiciliary care?
Domiciliary care allows you to remain living wherever you would like to be; for most people, this is in their own home. Our professionally trained Carers help take care of household chores, provide personal care, or sometimes act as a caring companions. We provide custom-tailored bespoke care services that allow you to remain at home rather than going to a residential care facility.
Domiciliary care can help you live the life you want
In addition to providing you with support at home, we also want to enable you to continue living the life you want to lead to the very best. Our carers want to do everything to help support you in living an independent life, and we can assist in getting you to medical appointments, shopping trips, meeting up with friends or going for a cup of tea with the family.
You, and your loved ones, can be at peace and rest in the knowledge that Lifted is providing the best possible domiciliary care for you or your loved one.

What does a Lifted Carer do when they visit?
Our domiciliary Carers can perform anything from establishing daily contact with clients and preparing their lunch to providing personal care. As well as providing practical support, their job is to give emotional support with your care goals at the forefront. Our carers love to help our clients live their best life, maintaining independence in their own homes.
It’s typical for Lifted Carers to help with one or more aspects of personal care. Whether this is assisting clients in getting washed and dressed every morning or taking care of their continence. Personal care isn’t always necessary; Every single person we support has their own personalised and individual care plan, so we ensure we are providing exactly what’s needed. It depends on what the individual care wishes are and whether they just need assistance getting out and about, performing light household tasks, or watering plants; whatever it is, we can help.
Carers offer practical assistance but are also friendly faces you can trust and get to know. As you watch your favourite TV program, they’ll happily share a cup of tea with you! When your care needs make it necessary for you to need regular support while on holiday, we can even accompany you wherever it is you plan to go. Not just on holidays either, for trips out, errands or a walk to the park, we’re there with you every step of the way if needed. It’s always reassuring to know that there will be someone to support you, whether you choose to go with your family or by yourself.

When looking for a carer, what do you look for?
Why is a good Carer so important? When it comes to finding a caregiver for someone close to you, getting it right is vital. We look for a number of qualities in our Carers, but the two most important ones are for them to be empathetic and compassionate. You can have all the care experience in the world, but if a carer doesn’t possess those qualities, they won’t work for us.
That’s because we truly care about our clients and their loved ones. We are extremely proud to carry Lifted’s values. Our selection process is rigorous, so only the very best (around 2% of applicants) become Lifted carers.
Empathy and compassion are vital characteristics that we look for during our recruitment process; additionally, Lifted Carers receive award-winning training. We conduct comprehensive assessments of our Carers and thorough background checks, including an advanced DBS check. Our training program covers topics such as manual handling, dementia, medications, health & safety, first aid and more.
After completing initial training, Carers receive regular refresher courses and can specialise in particular areas of interest or take advanced courses, such as specialised dementia training.
