Our Domiciliary Care service involves providing individual packages of care to those who have been assessed as needing this type of support to remain living at home as independently as possible. The service is highly regarded by local commissioners and colleagues in the health and social care sector and most importantly those receiving a service from us.

Trained Care Support Workers provide the service for people with minimal need as well as to people who may need a substantial amount of support. This may include caring for people with:

  • Terminal illness,
  • Life-limiting illnesses,
  • Dementia or Alzheimer’s,
  • Mental health issues,
  • Learning disabilities, or
  • Sensory impairment.
We liaise at all times with the person with care needs and their close family to ensure the most appropriate service is delivered at all times.

Our Domiciliary Care service is highly regarded by local commissioners and colleagues in the health and social care sector and most importantly those already receiving a service from us.

Our scheme is registered with the Care Quality Commission and complies with their legal requirements under Domiciliary Care Standards Regulations.

What is a domiciliary care visit like?
A domiciliary care visit can vary from as short as 15 minutes, where a simple lunch and cup of tea is prepared, to an hour long visit by two Care Support Workers to hoist, shower, dress and feed a client with more complex care needs. A Care Support Worker will assist with tasks that enable the service user to remain independent in their own homes.

How to request support
Referrals for the Domiciliary Care service are usually made by Social Workers, healthcare professionals, GP’s, District Nurses etc.

However, you, a family member, partner or friend can also make a direct request for support. We will discuss your requirements and if appropriate will arrange to visit, carry out an assessment of your needs and design a specific care package.

We can provide a personal service to those with care needs (including both children and adults) and will ensure that the provision of such personal care is user led.

You can find out more or discuss Domiciliary Care by calling us on 020 8905 1158.
