Home care also known as Domiciliary care is a service we offer clients in the comfort of their own home. We provide domiciliary care services to adults and the elderly and are regulated by the Care Quality Commission. We carry out internal quality checks including client satisfaction questionnaires, frequent staff training, spot-check and staff supervision. We pride ourselves on the quality of our domiciliary care services we provide within the Worcestershire area. Our domiciliary care clients invest in their care through either Government or private funding.
A tailored approach
Our care may entail a simple 15-minute check-up on customers at their home or it may mean a carer lives within the home 24 hours a day (known as ‘live-in care’). Our service meets clients needs no matter how challenging they may be. Each client requires a unique care service. We spend time determining the specific needs of our customers by tailoring care services to meet those needs. We encourage customers to remain as independent as possible. Our care includes attendance to social events and others outside the home activities.
Our care staff are qualified carers and we apply stringent criteria when selecting staff. Staff are subject to random spot-checks and supervised training. This means staff are able to deliver care services in a safe, efficient and professional manner.
Reasons for needing domiciliary care
Common reasons clients require domiciliary care services include:
- General mobility problems due to age, sickness or disability
- Temporary mobility issues following hospital discharge
- Temporary care needs e.g. respite care
- End of life ‘palliative care’
- Companionship care
Clients often choose domiciliary care services because they wish to remain in the comfort of their own home rather than moving to a care home. Customers are able to live within an environment where they are happy and close by to their love ones. We believe everyone should have the right to live within the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. Domiciliary care makes this wish possible.
