Domiciliary care is a term used by the care industry to refer to any visiting care service (where people receive care from a visiting carer in their own home).
It’s not uncommon for different care providers to call domiciliary care a variety of different names. Although you may encounter the terms ‘care at home’, ‘daily care’, ‘visiting care’ and ‘hourly care’, these names all refer to a care service where a Care Assistant will visit you or your loved one at home to provide care and support on a daily or weekly basis.
Domiciliary care may involve care visits of varying duration and frequency. From an occasional companionship visit for regular company and support to attend outings/appointments, to multiple visits every day to provide personal care and support with daily routines, domiciliary care is flexible to increase or decrease the frequency and duration of the visits as needs and wishes change over time.
A visiting care service is an option which provides support for the whole family. A compassionate and experienced Care Assistant will provide one-to-one personal care and attention at points during the day or week to best support you or your loved one.
From one care visit a week and up to several visits a day or overnight support, domiciliary care plans are entirely bespoke and flexible to accommodate for changing needs and wishes.
