4Life Healthcare Services - What is domiciliary care?

WHAT IS DOMICILIARY CARE?

Domiciliary Care is a flexible home care service that provides day-to-day support to adults wishing to continue living independently at home.

 

Popular services include: help with domestic tasks, prompting or assistance with medication, continence care, bathing/showering, preparing nutritious meals, and much more.

 

For clients requiring specialist support, our carers are professionally trained in caring for adults with long-term, complex health conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis or end of life (also know as Palliative Care).

 

We also provide domiciliary support to young adults and students, helping them gain confidence with their studies, access suitable employment, and set life goals.

 

Domiciliary Care is the ideal solution to alleviate pressures on family and friends, by sharing the responsibility with a down-to-earth, like-minded carer, who will provide a respite break whenever it's needed.
