You will receive a personalised care plan tailored to you. By supporting you through your plan, domiciliary carers will help you achieve your personal needs. Each plan is bespoke to the individual needs of each client and is adapted to any changing care requirements, for example changes to medication.
Unlike a care home, domiciliary care allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home and removes the upheaval of moving to a formal care setting.
Care homes do offer families with the peace of mind they require for their loved ones care, providing a safe and secure environment, where medication and all care needs can be met.
However the residential setting can greatly impact someone’s way of life. Domiciliary care, unlike a care home, does not impact on your independence and may allow you to continue living your daily routine how you wish. In a care home setting, you would be given allotted timings for daily meals, bed times and which activities you could engage in.
