What is Domiciliary Care?

Domiciliary care is a type of care that is provided at home by a professional caregiver. It may be provided on an intermittent, regular or live-in basis.

Domiciliary care providers help people with activities of daily living and other medical needs that they cannot do themselves.

There are many reasons why someone would need domiciliary care. For example, they may have a disability or illness that makes it difficult to do daily tasks, live alone, or have enough income to hire help.

What is a Licensed Homecare Provider?

A licensed home care provider is a person or agency that provides in-home care for patients who need assistance with their daily living. These providers are responsible for providing the following:

  • Basic medical services
  • Skilled nursing care
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech-language pathology services
  • Social work services
  • Medical social work services
  • Home health aide services

Benefits of Domiciliary Care

Domiciliary care is a way to help people live independently in their own homes. It is a service offered by local authorities, housing associations and third sector organisations.

The main benefits of domiciliary care are:

  • It helps people stay in their own homes;
  • It helps them to maintain their independence;
  • It provides social support and companionship.
  • It can be more cost-effective than residential care.
  • It can help alleviate pressure on yourself to provide the care they need.

How to Choose the Best Domiciliary Care Provider

Choosing a domiciliary care provider can be difficult, there are many providers out there, and they all offer different levels of care, but it is essential to find the right one for your needs.

To find the best domiciliary care provider for you, you should do some research and ask about people’s experiences with different providers in your area.

You can also look at the Homecare website, which has details and reviews on many home care providers in the UK.
