Domiciliary Care

Domiciliary (or home) care is simply the facilitation to maintain a persons independence in their own home, but having tasks such as cooking meals, cleaning etc. to be taken care of by a primary care giver (usually a family member) or a care assistant.

While this type of care does indeed provide independence to said person, it is generally only suitable for those that are very able to perform everyday tasks and who only require the very minimum of aid to get by in their daily routines.

Once the person starts to require additional aid, this can often put extra strain on the primary carer who, through no fault of their own, will often find it difficult to cope and potentially begin to blame themselves when the person requiring care begins to deteriorate in both health and mental state.

Domiciliary care can also become very expensive (compared to the fees of a care home say) when those in need of care become completely dependent and require 24 hour support, plus aid with dressing and washing etc.

Local councils are generally trying to keep people in their homes for as long as possible, although we agree this can be a good thing, we also believe that a care home such as ours is able to provide the independence and total care that an elderly person would need, at a very affordable price and with absolute professionalism. We believe this allows our residents to fully enjoy the latter stages of their life without having to worry about when the next visit of their primary carer will be.
