What is domiciliary care?
Domiciliary care refers to the different types of home care and support that can be provided in your own home. Anyone at any stage of life may require home care for instance, following an accident or illness, or due to a medical condition. Domiciliary care is extremely flexible as carers can offer varying types and intensities of care depending on your needs – from companionship and personal care, to specialist care such for more complex conditions.
If you or a loved one needs support with a specific condition, such as dementia or MS, then a professionally trained carer can provide this specialised care. All of our Manchester home care team are passionate about helping people in the Manchester area to maintain their quality of life and independence regardless of the barriers they might face.Request a callback Email us
A visiting care plan is designed completely around your routine. Your carer can come to your home once a week, or multiple times every day – it’s entirely dependent on your circumstances and requirements.
The flexible nature of domiciliary care means it can be the perfect solution if your needs change over time. Your care plan can simply be amended as and when needed to make sure that you are always receiving the most appropriate level of care.
Why is domiciliary care a good option?
The biggest advantage of domiciliary care is that it allows you continue living an independent lifestyle in the comfort of your own home. Domiciliary home care provides a great alternative to residential care.
Your domiciliary carer can help you with:
• Personal care
• Going out and about
• Maintaining hobbies and social activities
• Looking after pets
24-hour support from your carer
If you or your loved one has more complex needs, or requires continuous support, then our Manchester live-in care service is a great option.
Your fully-trained carer will be carefully matched to your personality and interests as well as your care needs and then will move into your home, so that they can be there to provide 24/7 assistance.
Your care package will be completely bespoke, to ensure the level of care that you are receiving is just right. It’s often the case that as well as being your carer, they will become a great companion and good friend too.
