In-home care is sometimes called domiciliary care or home help. It is when care-givers visit people in their own homes to provide help and support. These caregivers can help with personal care needs such as washing, getting dressed and practical tasks, providing much needed domestic support, giving nutritional advice, cooking a meal, prompting medication, shopping and leisure activities and even things we all take for granted like companionship.
domiciliary care services…
are unique to each service user, as everyone’s needs are different. Whether it is accompanying a service user on a hospital visit or giving daily care for more vulnerable cases. Our service users have diverse needs; some only require a prompting service with mediation which is a half an hour visit, others need 24 hour live in care. We can accommodate almost any needs. Our visit duration start from half an hour through to full time care.
What is Domiciliary Care
Domiciliary Care allows individuals (and couples) to stay in their own home, rather than become a resident of a Care home. Staying in sometimes, lifelong family homes and familiar surroundings/neighbourhoods. Causing far less disruption to daily lives and routines, not to mention a more cost effective option.
All our caregivers are subject to stringent checks and training to ensure the highest quality domiciliary care is provided for each and every service user we care for. Our carers actually care about our service users and many become close companions, dedicated to their chosen career. You’d be surprised at the impact of having different carers every week can have on a service users feeling of stability which is why we avoid it at all costs. At CareXL we are firm believers in providing continuity for our service users and apart from holiday times, each service user has the same familiar, friendly face for each visit.
