Living independently in your own home later in life is a dream many hold dear. But sometimes, a little extra help is needed to make that dream a reality.
Domiciliary Care is where individuals and families are supported with assisted living help tailored to their specific requirements and habits in the comfort of their own home.
Domiciliary Care, also known as home care, is a workable option as an alternative to a residential care home. This type of care at home allows individuals who require varying levels of assistance (due to illness, long-term medical concerns, or age) to live in their own homes independently or for longer than previously possible.
Domiciliary Care can range from a one-hour visit to a Care Professional living with you 24 hours a day.
Assistance with various daily activities is part of the service. Our team can offer companionship, emotional support, and help with daily tasks like:
At-home care can assist in monitoring health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

This type of care is referred to as companionship care, which typically involves social visits, help with shopping, and sometimes participating in activities and hobbies. It is crucial to prevent the health issues that can arise from social isolation and to provide professional care before any additional support needs arise.
A Care Professional will come to your home as often as you would like to assist you with the following day-to-day activities:
