What is home care (domiciliary care)?

Home care is the first step on the care ladder for people who need some assistance to retain their independence. It can be as simple as helping someone get up and about in the morning, or to help them take their medication, feed their pets or keep them mobile around their home.

For others, home care is high-dependency and 24-hour home care may be needed. We are guided by what our customers need and matching care and care-worker is of paramount importance.

Clients often need social support, more than personal care. Home visits can simply be about taking time to chat, popping to the shops or having a cup of tea together.

Ultimately our care assistants need to act with care, kindness and dignity, building relationships with their customers and helping them enjoy their lives.

Becoming a home care assistant is a great contribution to your community, looking after the needs of people who most likely have lived in your area for a long time.
