Domiciliary care provides the support you require when you need it, allowing you to live in the comfort of your own home. A visiting carer can provide assistance from as little as half an hour per week to multiple times per day.
We’re here to help you when you need it the most. From prescription assistance and toileting assistance to knowing your favourite food and whether you prefer a bath or shower, our completely regulated domiciliary care service allows you to continue living the life you desire, on your terms.
We have care staff that has worked inside the NHS, allowing us to provide specialised support for those living with various varieties of dementia, as well as in-home care for those suffering from Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, or recovering from a stroke, to mention a few.
We understand that asking for help might be tough at times. We’re here to walk you through your domiciliary care options and expenses. Contact us today to talk with one of our helpful customer service representatives.
How domiciliary care works
It might be tough to recognise when it is time to seek assistance or support. Physical duties, housework, particular personal care, or assistance following a medical discharge—whatever your requirements, a daily visit might make all the difference. It doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might assume.
Call to discuss your choices.
First and foremost, give us a call. Every week, our team speaks with hundreds of families, learning about their needs and discussing the care services we can offer in exchange. This is a casual talk in which you may express any concerns you have and dispel any anxieties or assumptions you may have about asking for help.
Whether you need short-term respite, convalescence, or are preparing for long-term care, we will have a schedule of visits for you to select from. Carers can come as often as you like, from half-hour calls to extended “sit” sessions that might last all day or even all night.
Consult with the care management team.
The next step is for us to get together and introduce you to one of our care managers. This meeting will expand on your previous talks by establishing the degree of support needed and allowing you to outline your expectations.
Then we create your personalised care plan. This paper will include everything about your needs, from medicine to mobility, difficulties, and routines. With the ability to always grow, this is the foundation of your service.
Who requires domiciliary care?
Domiciliary care is for anyone who wants to live independently in their own home but needs some assistance.
You may have lost confidence as a result of a fall or require more support following a stay in the hospital. Or perhaps your care needs have risen and you require more frequent assistance.
Whatever your needs are, the additional assistance provided by our home care services can make all the difference. Domiciliary care from Southood Healthcare can range from 30 minutes per week to numerous visits per day.
We believe in providing truly exceptional service by providing recognised caregiver training and complete ongoing support to all of our caregivers in order for them to provide you with the best care possible.
Why is domiciliary care different?
Domiciliary care, as opposed to residential care, is provided in your own home on your schedule. It lets you get the help you need without having to move into an assisted living or nursing home.
Domiciliary care is also completely tailored to your specific needs and preferences; if you prefer to do certain aspects of your care on your own, such as showering or personal care, our caregivers will always respect your choice and freedom.Domiciliary care can also be changed if you need more help with certain tasks or if your needs are becoming more complicated.
You may enjoy what is important to you by receiving one-on-one support from a professional carer. With a completely controlled and regulated service, you can be confident that the care you and your family get is safe and of the highest quality.
